Event description

Description

Today, leaders of both major political parties are concerned with securing the current and future support of the more than 27 million eligible Hispanic voters in the U.S.—the coveted “Latino Vote.” Yet, Latinos live in different parts of the U.S., identify with multiple racial categories, and/or have past and present family members who come from various regions in Latin America and beyond.

Given this diversity, is it possible to talk about Latino voters without miscasting them as a monolithic community? And given our current political climate, who benefits and who loses from grouping this diverse population into a single category?

Participating in this panel discussion are: G. Cristina Mora, Associate Professor of Sociology, University of California Berkeley; Geraldo L. Cadava, Associate Professor of History, Northwestern University; Jesús "Chuy" García, Cook County Commissioner, 7th District.

We invite you to come together with our distinguished panel to consider these questions and more in lively and relevant conversation on the “Latino” vote.

Leading this discussion is Emilio Kourí, Professor of History, University of Chicago.

This event is sponsored by the Center for Latin American Studies, Katz Center for Mexican Studies and the Institute of Politics.
