Join us for a conversation with the volume editors of SAR Press's recent publication Trumpism, Mexican America, and the Struggle for Latinx Citizenship: Phillip B. Gonzales, Renato Rosaldo, and Mary Louise Pratt.
Throughout their history in the United States, people of Mexican descent have been made to face the question of how they do or do not belong to the American social fabric and polity. Trumpism represented a new phase in their long struggle to achieve a sense of belonging and full citizenship. Driven by the overwhelming political urgency of the moment, Phillip Gonzales, Renato Rosaldo, and Mary Louise Pratt seek to frame Trumpism’s origins and political effects. In this book talk, they situate the latest phase of presidential politics in relation to what went before and ask what new political possibilities have emerged from this dramatic chapter in our history.
SAR Press director, Sarah Soliz, will guide the Q&A portion of the event. Explore her reflection on the importance of this publication and the book talk in her recent SAR blog post. Read the post.
