Recent Latino Historical Scholarship: A Critical Perspective

Lecture Description

Based on a forthcoming article to be published by Routledge, this lecture analyzes recent trends in Latino history, especially that related to the Mexican origin population, and their strengths and shortcomings. The lecture takes into account regional variations in the writing of Latino history, such as the difference between California-based works as opposed to those that focus on Texas. The lecture gives particular attention to the use of “dog whistle” politics against Latinos. In sum, the lecture raises important questions regarding the notion of Latino/Latinx history.
