Roundtable Discussion with Frederick Luis Aldama, Adrian Burgos, Jr., and Ed Morales

Imagining Latinidades

At the conclusion of the Imagining Latinidades “Cultural Citizenships and Popular Belonging” Symposium held virtually as Episode 19 of this podcast, co-host and co-director of the Sawyer Seminar, Darrel Wanzer-Serrano sits down with the three invited guests to discuss their paths in the field. Questions included: What’s your Latina/o/x Studies origin story? What does Latina/o/x Studies offer your scholarship that disciplinary perspectives/methods might not? What’s the value of Latina/o/x Studies to students and higher ed institutions? What’s the value of Latina/o/x Studies to communities outside of academia? What’s your message to a Latina/o/x listener at a PWI? Check out the chapter markers if you want to skip to a specific question or answer. ★ Thanks to our sponsors ★ The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation’s generous support through its Sawyer Seminar program allowed “Imagining Latinidades: Articulations of National Belonging” to launch at the University of Iowa. This podcast was born from the Sawyer Seminar and we hope it will continue on afterward. The Obermann Center for Advanced Studies, at Iowa, was the birthplace of our Seminar theme, which gave rise to this podcast.

Frederick Luis Aldama, "Decolonizing Latinx Masculinities" (U Arizona Press, 2020)

New Books in Gender and Sexuality

An early wave of research helped make visible the complex dynamics of sexuality and gender norms in Latino life, but a new generation of scholars is bringing renewed energy and curiosity to this field of inquiry. In this episode we sit down with Frederick Luis Aldama, Distinguished University Professor at the Ohio State University and co-editor of Decolonizing Latinx Masculinities (University of Arizona Press), to discuss some of the cutting-edge research in this new edited volume.This rich collection of work from eighteen contributors approaches the topic of masculinities from a diversity of perspectives and methodologies. With special emphasis on the plurality of Latinx masculinities, the essays reveal the divergent manifestations of masculinity across a broad spectrum including politics, social movements, literature, media, popular culture, personal experience, and other analytical angles. The pernicious effect of stereotypes and toxic Latinx masculinity is laid bare throughout the text in chapters that challenge the derogatory performances and reification of machismo in mainstream U.S. culture and society.At the same time, other essays look to how Latinx masculinities are being reclaimed and remade. Rejecting the inherited legacy of colonial thinking and heteronormative labels, authors outline the creation of new masculinities, new ways of being and coexisting. In this way, Decolonizing Latinx Masculinities shows that masculinities are not simply violent and traumatic, but also healing and affirming.Jaime Sánchez, Jr. is a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of History at Princeton University and a scholar of U.S. politics and Latino studies.
