Why Does Latinx History Matter for Twenty-First-Century Politics?

Lecture Description

Contemporary accounts of Latinas/os often focus on a present-day crisis or emergency — in education, at the ballot box, in the courts, or at the border. They seldom reckon with the longstanding presence, the deep-rooted institutions, and the political and cultural experiences of these communities in the United States. This lecture explores the value of those histories for deepening and reframing 21st-century debates.
