This chapter focuses on the political narrative of identity, language representations, and embodied experience in Mexico. It discusses the relation between modernity and urbanization in Mexico and suggests that modernity has also been a hegemonic national project of normative citizenship. It argues that the move to commodify medicine, pluralize health choices, and the turn to natural and alternative medicine translates through this low-income neighborhood as an interpretative struggle between faith and scientific knowledge.
