(Mar. 8, 2019) Presenting on Lin-Manuel Miranda at Digitizing Race Conference

The Latinx Project at NYU put together an amazing conference on “Digitizing Race: making Latinx in the 21st Century” and I was fortunate to present on a panel moderated by Cristina Beltrán entitled, “Social Media for Social Change.” I shared material from my essay, “Debt of Gratitude: Lin-Manuel Miranda and the Politics of US Latinx Twitter.”

Guadalupe Madrigal from the University of Michigan spoke about “Undocumented Activist Publics & Hashtag Anti-Detention Campaigns,” Rafael Ramirez Solórzano from UCLA discussed “Notes from the Trail: Blogging Across the South,and Janel Martinez, who founded, presented on, “From Tumblr, Twitter to Instagram: How Afro-Latinx Women Power Identity Conversations Online.”
