The Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility invites you to Latinx: Defining Identity at the Borderlands, a Statue Salon Series event.
Drawing on Gloria Anzaldua’s borderlands framework, Chakira Haddock-Lazala, Ph.D. (CHA-Harvard Medical School), Jesus Barrios (Callen-Lorde Community Health Center + CUNY) and Tamara Oyola-Santiago (Student Health Services) will lead us in a discussion about borders from a psychological, public health and language justice perspective.
Some of the ideas we will explore:
How do we understand the concept of borderlands from our respective fields?
What is Latinx and how is Latinx a term at the borderland?
What do we gain/ lose from the term Latinx?
In what ways does this term bring us closer to understanding the subjective person?
All are welcome and refreshments will be served!
