About this Event
featuring Dr. Cristóbal Salinas, Jr.
Associate Professor of Educational Leadership and Research Methodology
Florida Atlantic University’s College of Education
The categories of race, gender, and sexuality continue to be the site of analysis for many higher education researchers, effectively filling the void of intersectional approaches to student development and learning theory. Yet, we still struggle with terminology that honors people from Latin American origin and descent identities, let alone their intersections with systems of oppression.
Join Dr. Cristóbal Salinas, Jr. in a dialogue about the importance of Latin* and Latinx/a/o/e/i/u identities and labels that have been (mis)used, (mis)interpreted, and have not been fully examined. He will illuminate how the politics of naming social identities can perpetuate structures of power and work toward transforming higher education through critical naming processes.
