Latinx Consumers, Viewers, Stories and Spin: A Conversation with Professor Arlene Dávila
April 21, 2022 @ 3:30 pm - 4:45 pm CDT
Join the Latino Media Arts and Studies program for a conversation with Professor Arlene Dávila, whose work on the imagining of Latinx cultures and people in U.S. media and popular culture has been influential in a variety of fields, including scholarship on advertising, film and media, and art. In this conversation with Professor Mary Beltrán, Professor Dávila will touch on a variety of themes that she has grappled with in her influential scholarship. From Latinos, Inc. and Latino Spin, to her most recent work, Latinx Art: Artists, Markets, and Politics, Dávila sheds light on the complexities of Latinx representation and self-representation, including how Latinxs are constructed as markets, audiences, citizens, and artists. Her insights with regard to the dynamics of the global media economy and the politics of representation continue to shape how we understand the profound connections between the culture industries, Latinx identity, and efforts to attain political equality. We hope you will take part in this important conversation.
