Considering this cultural group’s rapidly growing population in the U.S., it is important to understand the distinctions among ethnic terms relating to this cultural group. This panel discussion/plática will invite speakers and audience members to engage in a dialogue on the definitions of and distinctions among ethnic terms relating to the U.S. Latinx/Hispanic population.

  • Dr. Norma Cantu, Professor of the Humanities, Modern Languages, & Literatures, Trinity University
