In the third of a series of three events -- Directions in Latino Representation -- co-sponsored by the Department of Communication Studies, Lambda Pi Eta, and the Center for Inclusion and Diversity in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, a panel of USD faculty and visiting professors will discuss the current state of Latinos in the media. The panel discussion will question current regimes of representation and identify the ways in which media production has responded to the growth of Latino audiences.
