Dr. Garcia will discuss her qualitative research that examines how Latina girls’ experiences with sexism, racism, homophobia, and socioeconomic marginality inform how they engage and begin to rework their meanings and processes of gender and sexuality. The presentation, based on her book, will emphasize how Latina youth themselves understand their sexuality, particularly how they conceptualize and approach sexual safety and pleasure.

The Qualitative Research Interest Group of the Consortium on Race, Gender, and Ethnicity is hosting this presentation.

Co-sponsored by the Maryland Population Research Center, U.S. Latina/o Studies Program and the Departments of American Studies and Women's Studies.

A light lunch will be served.
