Dr. Darrel Wanzer-Serrano (Associate Professor of Communication Studies and Director of Latina/o Studies at the University of Iowa) will introduce webinar participants to some core concepts and histories of Latina/o/x Studies and peoples, with an eye toward issues that would be most relevant to speech and debate coaches trying to serve Latina/o/x student populations. Key issues will include terminology (Hispanic, Latina/o/x, Latinidad), demographic information and history, and some practical and easy-to-implement suggestions to aid in recruitment, retention, and post-secondary placement of Latina/o/x students.
