In Search of Belonging: A Talk with Author Jillian Baez
Thursday, January 17
7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Jillian Baez is the author of In Search of Belonging: Latinas, Media, and Citizenship. The book explores the ways Latina/o audiences in general, and women in particular, make sense of and engage both mainstream and Spanish-language media.
Ms Baez will be in conversation with Ed Morales, author of Latinx: The New Force in American Politics and Culture, which explains how Latinx political identities are tied to a Latin American history of “mixedness” and that this is a key to understanding bilingual, bicultural Latin cultures and politics and a challenge to America’s racial regime.
Copies of the books will be available for sale.
