Lecture 1- Latinxs and the Future of Whiteness in American Democracy

Monday April 10 10:20 am- noon in the Chalon Art Gallery


Demographic changes driven primarily by the growth in the Latinx community suggest that the U.S. will become a “minority-majority” country by around 2050. Professor Mendoza will argue why we should be suspicious of this claim and what that might entail for our democracy.


Lecture 2: Crimmigration: The Injustice of Criminalizing Migration

Tuesday April 11 9:40-11:10 am Donohue Center


Opponents of immigration have often overlooked some key injustices that can only be remedied through a more robust conception of immigrant rights. Professor Mendoza will argue that one of those overlooked areas is the recent phenomenon of “crimmigration.”
