The CUNY Institute of Mexican Studies, Latin American, Latino, and Puerto Rican Studies invite you to the launch event for NACLA’s Winter Edition Report: Latino New York (rescheduled from February 5).
In the mid-1970s, the New York media alerted the public to a Latin Boom in the big city. Back then, it was the salsa craze, the emergence of a new wave of politicians and activists, and the surpassing of the one million threshold in the Latino population...Four decades and over a million Latinos later, we seem to be on the verge of another boom. Latino New York examines this new boom.
Andrés Torres (Latin American, Latino, and Puerto Rican Studies) offers an introduction about New York’s steadily growing Hispanic population
Alfonso Gonzales (Political Science) explores Mexican civil societies, the private associations and organizations outside the formal apparatus of government or economy, in “Building from the Ground Up”
Alyshia Gálvez (Latin American, Latino, and Puerto Rican Studies and CUNY Institute of Mexican Studies) considers the role of public prenatal care on undocumented immigrants in “Strivers into Patients: How Public Prenatal Care May Disempower Future Citizens”
Ed Morales, Journalist and Columbia University Lecturer and Fred Rosen, Editor, NACLA Report, will also be present.
