THIS IS A PAST EVENT.

September iLab Lunch and Learn: The Complexity of the 'x' in Latinx

This virtual presentation, lead by Dr. Cristobal Salinas of Florida Atlantic University, will engage in a dialogue about the importance of Latinx/a/o/* students’ identities and labels that have been (mis)used, (mis)interpreted, and have not been fully examined. The goal is to illuminate how the politics of naming social identities can perpetuate structures of power, and work toward transforming higher education through critical naming processes.

Cristobal Salinas Jr., Ph.D., is an associate professor in the Educational Leadership and Research Methodology Department at Florida Atlantic University. His research promotes access and equality in higher education and explores the social and political context of education opportunities for historically marginalized communities. Dr. Salinas is the Founder and Editor-in-Chief for the Journal Committed to Social Change on Race and Ethnicity. He has published over 17 peer-reviewed articles, co-edited 4 book, and over 27 book chapters, and has received over 25 international and national awards for his commitment to social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion. His research has been featured in CNN, NPR, and Good Morning America.
