La Canoa: Latinos in the Public Media and the Popular Imagination

January 21

2 pm to 4 pm

Join Michael A. Olivas, University of Houston law professor and native New Mexican, as he looks at this topic through several lenses, including depictions in the popular press; film and television industries; and music. He will show how the widespread and relentlessly negative characterizations of Latinos have serious consequences in all areas of the public imagination and the polity. New Mexico has a long and significant history of music, movies, and literature that have contributed to the historical record, and he will draw many examples from local lore.

Free event, open to the public.
