Today, we have a very special program  planned for you. A year ago, we were supposed to host my guests for a one-day Symposium in Iowa City on the topic of LATINA/O/X CULTURAL CITIZENSHIPS & POPULAR BELONGING. After having addressed issues surrounding formal citizenship and national belonging in the Fall 2019 semester, this one-day symposium was supposed to bring subject area experts (our guests, today) to discuss modalities of popular belonging (television, sports, music, literature, and more) in Latina/o/x contexts in the U.S. Alas, that symposium was the first thing we had to cancel due to the emerging coronavirus pandemic. So after Ariana and I had a chance to start settling into our new locations after our moves, we realized that one of the best ways we could make up the symposium was with a couple of episodes of this podcast. In this episode, we’ll be sticking to the subject matter of the symposium.  After I introduce them, each of my guests will have a chance to offer short opening statements and then we’ll proceed into some questions about cultural citizenship and popular belonging. In the NEXT episode, we’ll do our traditional “roundtable” format and dive into what we’ve called their “origin stories” as well as their thoughts on the importance of Latinx Studies education. ★ Thanks to our sponsors ★ The Andrew W.

Darrel and Rene are feeling exhausted (and in the best of ways) from the opening Imagining Latinidades conference.  Today, they talk about what they learned, discussed histories and presents of Latina/o/x Studies and Ethnic Studies, and waded into the debate over the term/concept of Latinidad.

In this second episode of the Imagining Latinidades podcast, two of the three co-hosts (Rene is absent) talk with two of the three Mellon fellows who are involved with the Sawyer Seminar. Topics discussed, which form chapter markers in your podcast listening app, include: Pronouncing “Latinx” and “LatinX” Rachel Torres’s (Latinx superhero) “origin story” Lisa Ortiz’s (Latinx superhero) “origin story” The importance of Latina/o/x Studies for students Lisa’s current research Rachel’s current research  Latina/o/x Studies' connection between research and community What's your message for Latina/o/x students at PWIs? And don’t forget: our first main event takes place September 19-21. Information on the website at http://imagininglatinidades.com.★ Thanks to our sponsors ★ The Andrew W.

Show notes: Read about Lisa Ortiz and Rachel Torres here: https://imagininglatinidades.lib.uiowa.edu/about/mellon-fellows/ Rachel mentioned a couple things that made a difference as an undergrad: 1) UNT’s Emerald Eagles Scholars program; 2) UNT’s McNair Scholars program Rachel also mentioned a couple of people important to her as an undergrad: Regina Branton | Department of Political Science and Valerie Martinez-Ebers | Department of Political Science Lisa’s undergrad program is here: http://business.uprm.edu/adof/index.php. Her Masters program is here: https://www.uprm.edu/english/. Mentors in Puerto Rico included Dr. Jocelyn A. Géliga-Vargas and Dr. Catherine Mazak.  A few programs of interest and referenced by Lisa include: the Summer Predoctoral Institute (SPI) at  https://grad.illinois.edu/diversity/spi-objectives; Latina/Latino Studies at Illinois; and La Casa Cultural Latina | La Casa Cultural Latina, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. On the (historically fraught) relationship between Blackness and Latinidad(es), see the excellent work from the Black Latinas Know Collective: https://www.blacklatinasknow.org/about-blkc. Also see scholarship and other writings in the groundbreaking edited book, The Afro-Latin@ Reader. If we had talked about higher education a bit more, Lisa would have mentioned Dr. Roderick Ferguson’s book The Reorder of Things: The University and Its Pedagogies of Minority Difference (2012).  For a broader perspective on the “why Latina/o/x Studies question that was discussed, consider Lisa Marie Cacho’s work regarding Ethnic Studies, “But Some of Us Are Wise: Academic Illegitimacy and the Affective Value of Ethnic Studies.” The Black Scholar 40:4: 28-36.
