what does it mean to include an x in the word Latinx


University Center : Pride Center (201-D)

Do you also love podcasts? Have you ever wished you could talk to someone about them? Or have a dialogue about a topic that you heard in a podcast?

Then this is the opportunity for you to join i3b and IDEALists (social justice peer educators) to engage in a podcast listening and dialogue circle. We will be listening to bytes of a podcast and have a shared dialogue around it.

Our first PodByte is around the X in Latinx and what does it mean to include an x in the word Latinx. We will engage in talking about broader conversations around how language evolves to describe our lived experiences, and the intersections of gender and racial identities. No need to come in with prior knowledge- just an openness to listening and engaging as we explore (podcast)byte by (sound)byte together!

Our i3b staff strives to create the most inclusive environment possible. If you need to request a disability-based accommodation or have any questions, contact us at i3b@umbc.edu.

Materials will be available in this Box Drive within one business week after the event unless otherwise specified.
