Griffin Hall, 3 844 Main St, Williamstown, MA 01267

Race, Immigration, and the Future of Latino PoliticsThe growing presence and visibility of Latinos in U. S. society has led to heated debates about their potential impact on the political landscape, immigration policy, and even how they might reshape the way the country thinks about race. In this talk, Professor Juliet Hooker, a Professor from the University of Texas at Austin, will explore the arguments that have been made by scholars and activists for how Latinos should think about their identity in the United States. Afterwords, she will sketch the potential consequences of the various paths scholars and activists propose on relations with other minority groups such as African-Americans and on alliances and coalitions Latinos could form to struggle for changes to current immigration policy.
