A vibrant panel of Latinx writers, performers, and academics speak of their roots, inspirations and influences. An engaging session of readings, performances and conversation about their work and the cultural and political landscapes that it inhabits. Assistant Professor of Women & Gender Studies at the University of Colorado, Boulder and an active performance artist Kristie Soares’s work explores gender in Latinx culture, with a specialization in queer Caribbean literature and media. Natalie Avalos, Chicana of Apache descent, is an ethnographer of religion whose research and teaching focus on Native American and Indigenous religions. Ramon Del Castillo is a professor of the Chicana/o Studies Department at the Metropolitan State University of Denver and author of several books of nonfiction, fiction and poetry which reveal the realities of being Mexica/AmerIndian/Chicano. In conversation with author and academic Arturo Aldama, they reflect upon racism, oppression, and the multivalent literature, histories, and identities of Latinx experience in the US.
