Book Talk: "Reframing the Latino Immigration Debate: Towards a Humanistic Paradigm"
Wednesday, October 9, 2013 -
3:00pm to 5:00pm
CSRC Library - 144 Haines Hall
In Reframing the Latino Immigration Debate: Towards a Humanistic Paradigm (San Diego State University Press, 2013), his new book of non-fiction essays, Alvaro Huerta, CSRC visiting scholar, asks readers to reassess critical political and cultural issues unfolding along the U.S./Mexico border. Paired in this volume with the photography of Antonio Turok, Huerta's words move readers “towards a humanistic paradigm” in a work that has been called as a “must read” for students, scholars, and policy-makers alike. Huerta’s presentation will be followed by a conversation with UCLA professor of history and former CSRC director Juan Gómez-Quiñones, who provided the book’s foreword.
Books will be available for purchase at this event.
