Who Are We? The Politics of Naming, Labels, & Identity in Ethnic Studies Departments

How do you identify?  Hispanic, Latino, Nuyorican, Black, West Indian, Cariben~o, African-American, none-of-the-above, all-of-the-above, or something else entirely?  How do ethnic identities and racial labels arise and change over time?  Why do they matter and what are their implications? 

Join faculty members of the Department of Black and Hispanic Studies as they discuss these issues and consider options for renaming their department.  Student input is greatly encouraged.
