Latino/Latina Communication Studies Division

Latino/Latina Communication Studies Division logo

The Latina/o Communication Studies Division, in conjunction with La Raza Caucus, fosters the study of communication issues and their attendant intersections with matters of concern for Latina/o communities throughout the Americas. The division embraces an intersectional approach to identity that considers the ways race, ethnicity, class, gender, nation, and sexuality converge to shape Latina/o experiences. Members of the division and caucus embrace a variety of methodological perspectives, including critical, qualitative, and quantitative. The goals of the division are educational advocacy, networking, recruitment and retention, and cultural promotion.
