2012-2013 Speaker Series
This year, we are working with various departments and disciplines in order to reflect on the boundaries, tensions, and productive dialogues that have emerged from Latino/a scholarship in various disciplines. The speakers in our 2012-2013 Speaker Series (PDF) will share their research as well as comment on their own location in the interstices of both. How is our work informed by our own disciplinary training? How do we become inter- or trans-disciplinary? How do the disciplines understand the scholarly production about U.S. Latino/as? What are the mutual transformations for each? For more information on our events please visit email us at email@example.com.
