Object of the research is Hispanic American community on the teritorry of the USA. From the beginning of the 20th century there were economic migrations from the area of Mexico, Cuba, Puerto Rico and other areas in Central and South America and with it they increased and enlarged existing Hispanic American community, as well as overall American society.

Thereat the focus of the research will be on the period after 1990 when Hispanic American immigration and residence in the USA entered a new and complex phase, charactarised by growing panhispanic identity, civic activism and political participation.
