Seven up-and-coming scholars from across the country, along with distinguished professor Charlene Villaseñor Black of UCLA, will headline the Young Scholars Symposium at the Institute for Latino Studies next week.
The virtual gathering on March 18 and 19 is part of an annual ILS initiative to bring together advanced graduate students and junior faculty working to complete a dissertation, book, or other form of research related to Latinx people in the U.S. Villaseñor Black, a Professor of Art History and Chicana/o Studies, will give a keynote address entitled “Thinking about Migration through Latinx Art” on Thursday at 4 p.m. via Zoom. The event is open to the public and more information is available at latinostudies.nd.edu.
As part of the symposium, Villaseñor Black and junior faculty from Notre Dame will help participants workshop their research. The two aims of the symposium are to provide emergent scholars with support and to acquaint them with Notre Dame should they be on the job market in the future, says ILS Director Luis Fraga, Professor of Political Science.
