Americanist Dinner Forum: "Emerging Latinx Studies at Wash U"

West Campus, Conference Room A/B, 6:30pm-8:00pm

October

12

As the field of Latinx Studies continues to evolve, diversify, and grow across the United States, important emergences are happening at Washington University to develop initiatives in this area.  A Steering Committee has been formed, and this panel brings together members of that committee to discuss national trends and local activities, the crucial importance of Latinx Studies for our intellectual community, and the ways in which the field speaks critically to topical issues across the contemporary political and social landscape.  The panel will therefore also explore linkages and connections between Latinx Studies and American Culture Studies.

RSVPs are due to tbehr@wustl.edu by Friday, October 6th.

The Americanist Dinner Fora are the flagship intellectual event for the AMCS community. Each month features a new set of speakers exploring a topic relevant to American Studies through the medium of a selected reading. The reading will be circulated the week prior. AMCS graduate students are expected to attend each of the fora, and AMCS Faculty are strongly encouraged to attend.
