This will be a moderated, one-hour long conversation with Baruch Professors Rojo Robles and Rebecca Salois about their new podcast, Latinx Visions. Questions for the hosts will be generated by faculty and students from the Social Sciences Department and the Department for Ethnic and Race Studies.

About LatinX Visions
The podcast looks at LatinX culture, arts, media, literature, TV, film, and more, with a focus in the first season on Latinas. Listen to the introductory episode here. The podcast’s first season will focus on Latinas, with forthcoming episodes examining Elizabeth Acevedo’s novel in verse, Clap When You Land; the film Mosquita y Mari; the Netflix show One Day at a Time; and Karla Cornejo Villavicencio’s The Undocumented Americans, which was a National Book Award finalist and one of Obama’s favorite books from last year. (Cornejo Villavicencio is also a writer-in-residence this year at Baruch.) Another episode will also look at the grassroots organization Mixteca.
