Michael A. Olivas discusses depictions of Latinos in the popular press, the film and television industries, and the music world.

Join Michael A. Olivas, University of Houston law professor and native New Mexican, in exploring Latinos in the Public Media and the Popular Imagination. The presentation will look at the topic through several lenses, including depictions in the popular press, the film and television industries, and the music world. His examples will show how the widespread and relentlessly-negative characterizations of Latinos have serious consequences in all areas of the public imagination and the polity. New Mexico has a long and significant history of music, movies, and literature that have contributed to the historical record, and he will draw many examples from local lore.
