Event Details:

Please join us for a conversation on the growing use of the term ‘Latinx” and the politics surrounding its increasing popularity. We are joined by scholars who specialize in race and sexual politics, LGBTQ communities, film and visual culture, joteria studies, education, student activism and social movements. We will debate the questions “Latinx” raises around language, latinidad, gender identity, plurality, race and nationhood and its implications for colleges and universities across the country and us at Stanford.
