Queer Brown Voices: The Hidden Stories of Latina/o Activists

Time: 6 pm to 8 pm

Contact: Nathan Henne · nchenne@loyno.edu · 865-3842

Location: Multimedia Room 2, Monroe Library

Queer Brown Voices, a 2015 release from University of Texas Press, chronicles 
the experiences of fourteen Latina/o LGBT activists and presents a new 
perspective on the hitherto-marginalized history of their work in the last 
three decades of the twentieth century.
In this talk, co-editors of that volume, Uriel Quesada, Letitia Gomez and
Salvador Vidal-Ortiz, share with the audience the writing process behind
Queer Brown Voices and discuss the importance of personal narratives for
the Latino LGBT community.

Sponsored by Latin American Studies, the Department of Languages and Cultures, and the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies of Loyola University

They have come in peace Immigration: Virtue or Threat?

Time: 7 pm to 9 pm

Contact: Behrooz Moazami · bmoazami@loyno.edu · (504) 865-2162

Location: Miller Hall 114

The presentation will draw from the successful tale of Alfred Nicola in the US at the turn of the twentieth century, why he came and what this meant to his own country of origin that was in transformation (in his most recent book, see below).  Building on this, it will look at immigration then and today, the impacts and implications, the reasons and challenges.

The event includes a talk and a book signing by the author Raif Shway.
