“Latinx Heritage at the Intersections of Culture and Crisis,” is a series of Zoom conversations in honor of Latinx Heritage Month (September 15-October 15). The website can be opened here: https://arts-sciences.buffalo.edu/romance-languages-literatures/news-events/recent-news/LatinxHeritageattheIntersectionsofCultureandCrisis.html
The first session is Wednesday, September 22, 2021 at 4:00pm. Prof. Héctor Domínguez-Ruvalcaba (University of Texas, Austin) will speak on “HipHop, Violence, and Queer Latinx Identity.” Preregistration link can be found on the website.
The purpose of the series is to put prominent scholars in direct contact with communities at and beyond UB, in order to expand our notions of Latinx heritage. Each session will begin with a brief injunction by our guest, followed by ample time for public discussion and debate. It is co-organized by UB Distinguished Visiting Scholar Carlos Amador and myself. It is sponsored by the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures, the UB Center for Diversity Innovation, and the College of Arts and Sciences.
