The Sound of Exclusion: NPR and the Latinx Public

Faculty Publication

CLLAS Director Chris Christopher Chávez has published, “The Sound of Exclusion: NPR and the Latinx Public;” it is forthcoming.

From the publisher, the University of Arizona Press:

As a network that claims to represent the nation, NPR asserts unique claims about what it means to be American. In The Sound of Exclusion, Christopher Chávez critically examines how National Public Radio conceptualizes the Latinx listener, arguing that NPR employs a number of industry practices that secure its position as a white public space while relegating Latinx listeners to the periphery. These practices are tied to a larger cultural logic. Latinx identity is differentiated from national identity, which can be heard through NPR’s cultivation of an idealized dialect, situating whiteness at its center. Pushing Latinx listeners to the edges of public radio has crucial implications for Latinx participation in civic discourses, as identifying who to include in the “public” audience necessarily involves a process of exclusion.

Latinx Studies Minor Announced

The Indigenous, Race, and Ethnic Studies (IRES) Department recently announced the addition of a Latinx Studies minor for undergraduates. Laura Pulido, head of IRES, says, “We were delighted to learn that the Latinx Studies Minor was approved earlier this month. A large group of Latinx Studies faculty from across campus have been working to ensure that the minor is ready to enroll students in the fall and to begin developing ancillary programming and student opportunities.”

We at CLLAS look forward to finding ways to partner with the new minor to engage undergraduates in research opportunities. Check back with IRES as fall approaches for more information. https://ethnicstudies.uoregon.edu/
