Latino/Latina/Latinx studies has emerged over recent decades as a vibrant field within and beyond anthropology, as befits its transborder, coyote, oceans connect sensibility. Barrios and borders remain important foci of attention but the field is multiple, addressing political ecology, sustainability, medicine, race politics, gender and sexuality (note the nonbinary X), and more. Our guests will join us for a discussion of the politics, directions, problems, and possibilities.
