Latina/o/x Citizenship and National Belonging (Sawyer Seminar Symposium)

November 8 @ 9:00 am - 5:30 pm


For this one-day symposium — part of our yearlong Mellon Foundation-funded Sawyer Seminar on “Imagining Latinidades: Articulations of National Belonging” — three speakers will address the ways Latina/o/x communities are integrated into and respond to dominant U.S. political and cultural social practices. Speakers will provide a strong historical foundation, attend to political processes, and draw out some of the less formal ways in which citizenship is imagined and practiced in Latina/o/x contexts. Each speaker will deliver a plenary address, which will be followed by Q&A.
Speakers include the following: Jillian Ba´ez is Associate Professor in the Department of Media Culture at the College of Staten Island, City University of New York.
Julie A. Minich is Associate Professor and Graduate Advisor of Mexican American & Latina/o Studies at the University of Texas at Austin.
Suzanne Oboler is Professor of Latin American and Latina/o Studies at John Jay College of the City University of New York.
This event will be held at the Iowa City Public Library.
