Presented by the UIC Latino Cultural Center and Latin American and Latino Studies Program
Join us in welcoming Alex E. Chávez, who will discuss his new book Sounds of Crossing: Music, Migration, and the Aural Poetics of Huapango Arribeño. He will address how huapango arribeño music voices desires of recognition and connection among contemporary Mexican migrants. The product of transnational experiences, its performance constitutes an act of social affirmation that disturbs both legal and cultural-nationalist logics on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border.
Ethnographer-composer-academic-musician, Alex E. Chávez is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology and a faculty fellow of the Institute for Latino Studies at the University of Notre Dame. His research explores Latina/o expressive culture as manifested through language, performance, and sound.
