Imagining Latinidades Today
Darrel, Ariana, and Rene tell their Latina/o/x (superhero) origin stories, talk about the evolution of the Latina/o Studies Program at Iowa, and riff on what Imagining Latinidades means to them.
Darrel, Ariana, and Rene record their first full episode in a real honest-to-goodness studio that doesn’t have terrible acoustics. The episode also has chapters; so you’ll see topics change depending on your podcast app (Overcast shows these well). Topics in this episode include:
- Rene’s backstory
- Darrel’s backstory
- Rene and all having a discussion about “me-search”
- Ariana’s backstory
- Latina/o Studies at Iowa
- The Sawyer Seminar
- What’s next…
★ Thanks to our sponsors ★
- The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation’s generous support through its Sawyer Seminar program allowed “Imagining Latinidades: Articulations of National Belonging” to launch at the University of Iowa. This podcast was born from the Sawyer Seminar and we hope it will continue on afterward.
- The Obermann Center for Advanced Studies, at Iowa, was the birthplace of our Seminar theme, which gave rise to this podcast.
