Turning Latinas/os/x Into a Month: Mediatizing a Heterogeneous Culture

Wednesday, October 20 at 4:15pm to 5:30pm

Virtual Event

Each September, corporations, educational institutions, and media outlets invest heavily in the celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. While the effort is meant to acknowledge the unique contributions of Latinxs, it has, for some organizations, become a way to publicly assert their commitment to diversity without promoting any substantive change. In this panel discussion, three Latinx scholars discuss the role of Hispanic Heritage Month in contemporary society. As part of that discussion, panelists will explore the impact of such celebrations on the actual lived experiences of Latinxs, including which facets of Latinx life are considered worthy of public celebration, and which are obscured and left unaddressed.
