What's in a name?

About this on-demand event:

Ohio State's Latinx Alumni Society hosts a virtual conversation with Dr. Elena Foulis, a senior lecturer in Ohio State’s Department of Spanish and Portuguese, to explore the nuanced identifiers of the Latinx community. Hispanic, Latino, Latinx, Chicano, Mexican, Puerto Rican, Spanish, Colombian, the list goes on. There are so many different ways that we identify ourselves and ways others choose to identify us.
