Description: 

NEH's Latino Americans project was developed to support the public’s exploration of the history and experiences of Latinos and how they’ve shaped the U.S. over the last 500 years. Project scholars and staff will speak about the humanities themes within WETA’s LATINO AMERICANS documentary series, including the diversity of immigrant experiences and the creation of Latino identities. We will also discuss the project’s use of documentary film to spark dialogue about the past, present, and future of Latino communities. In so doing, we will highlight the project’s national scope and significance.

Speakers:
-Eva Caldera, NEH Assistant Chairman for Partnership and Strategic Initiatives
-David Montejano, Professor, Department of Ethnic Studies, University of California, Berkeley.
-Stephen Pitti, Professor of History and American Studies and the Director of the Ethnicity, Race and Migration Program at Yale University
-Lesley Williams, Head of Adult Services, Evanston Public Library
