Yalidy Matos

Rutgers University, New Brunswick

Matos will explore the importance of racial identity and underlying racial ideologies in Latina/o politics. She hypothesizes that the conceptualization of Latinos as a panethnic group glosses over the significance of discrete racial identities and racialized ideologies for how Latino/as make sense of the world around them and their political attitudes and behavior.
