The Department of Latin American, Latino, and Iberian Studies welcomes Dr. Frederick Luis Aldama, Arts and Humanities Distinguished Professor of English and University Distinguished Scholar at The Ohio State University. 

Aldama will unzip his brain, offering a multimedia extravaganza of all things Latinx in the 21st century. This includes an exploration of contemporary mainstream film, TV, music, animation, comic books, video games that simplifies and straightjackets Latinx identity and experience. He contrasts this with today’s abundance of Latinx created cultural phenomena that vitally complicates and enriches our understanding of Latinx identity and experience.  Along the way Aldama presents a dynamic model for understanding Latinx subjects as active transformers of the world we live in today.

This event is free and open to the public.
