Roundtable Discussion with Suzanne Oboler, Jillian Báez, and Julie Minich

Ariana Ruiz sits down in front of a live audience with three esteemed Latina/o/x Studies scholars — Suzanne Oboler, Jillian Báez, and Julie Minich — to talk about how they came to the field, what it offers a host of audiences, and what Latina/o/x students at PWIs should keep in mind as they move through college.

At the conclusion of the Imagining Latinidades Latina/o/x Citizenship and National Belonging Symposium in Iowa City, Iowa, co-host and co-director of the Sawyer Seminar, Ariana Ruiz sits down with the three invited lecturers to discuss their paths in the field. Questions included:
  • What’s your Latina/o/x Studies origin story?
  • What does Latina/o/x Studies offer your scholarship that disciplinary perspectives/methods might not?
  • What’s the value of Latina/o/x Studies to students and higher ed institutions?
  • What’s the value of Latina/o/x Studies to communities outside of academia?
  • What’s your message to a Latina/o/x listener at a PWI?
