On Wednesday, October 5th 2022, Dr. Jonathan Rosa (Stanford University) will be giving a talk on "Latinx Languages and Identities Beyond Borders."

Abstract: Longstanding debates about US Latinx identities challenge homogenizing racial, ethnic, linguistic, socioeconomic, gender, sexual, and religious stereotypes. These stereotypes and the hierarchies to which they are linked reflect complex colonial histories and contemporary realities across the Americas. Drawing on ethnographic and sociolinguistic research conducted in a predominantly Mexican and Puerto Rican Chicago public high school and its surrounding communities, this presentation approaches Latinidad as a crucial site from which to analyze the (re)production of racial, linguistic, and national borders, as well as to reimagine worlds beyond these borders.


The talk will begin at 3pm (Conference Center 110) and will be followed by Q&A with the audience and a reception with food and drinks at 4:15pm. Students, faculty, staff, and members of the larger Merced community are all welcome to attend!


The talk is part of a new interdisciplinary talk series on Language & Communication called CROSSTALK. To receive updates about this event and future talks in this series, please sign up for our mailing list: https://bit.ly/3AtQnkk
