Andrew W. Mellon Sawyer Seminar

The 2019-20 Mellon Sawyer Seminar, “Imagining Latinidades: Articulations of National Belonging,” is co-directed by UI College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Latina/o Studies Program faculty member Darrel Wanzer-Serrano (Communication Studies), Rene Rocha (Political Science), and Ariana Ruiz (Spanish & Portuguese), with assistance from post-doctoral fellow Lisa Ortiz.

“Imagining Latinidades” builds upon the strong foundation of the UI’s interdisciplinary Latina/o Studies Program, itself an outgrowth of the Obermann Center’s 2012 Humanities Symposium, “The Latino Midwest.”
