Imagining Latinidades

In this first episode after the Imagining Latinidades opening conference, Rene Rocha and Darrel Wanzer-Serrano discuss what the conference meant to them and then dive into the recurring controversy over the term Latinidad.

Show Notes

Darrel and Rene are feeling exhausted (and in the best of ways) from the opening Imagining Latinidades conference.  Today, they talk about what they learned, discussed histories and presents of Latina/o/x Studies and Ethnic Studies, and waded into the debate over the term/concept of Latinidad. (No bullet points because that about covers it.)
