Dr. Jamie Booth, from Social Work, will be discussing her work with an innovative method, Visual Voices. The article is: The role of bilingualism in Latino youth experiences of acculturation stress when living in an emerging Latino community. Booth, J, Huerta C, and Thomas, B. Qualitative Social Work29(4): 1069-1077, 2021.
Sponsored by the Center for Latin American Studies, we explore 1) the problems Latinos in small yet rapidly growing populations face, and 2) how to solve those problems. We hope to get new writing and research collaborations going! Open to all interested: students, faculty, staff, and practitioners from Pitt and beyond. If you want to get extra network time, we will be there 30 minutes before and after the meeting time.
