Latin American and Latino Studies

Hispanic, Latina/o, Latinx? How ethnic studies informs categories of US-born Latina/o/x 
Salvador Vidal-Ortiz
Department of Sociology, American University
This talk will illustrate the explicit politics of the category Latinx (by going through Hispanic, national origin, and Latina/o) – both in terms of the history of Latina/o/x Studies as an ethnic project, versus a development/area Latin American Studies project. Latinx as a category informs a US-based, but potentially hemispheric approach – in addition to addressing gender and sexual identification categories.
