Thursday, March 28, 2024 at 4:30pm, Scheuer, Kohlberg Hall

Based on her research for the book Latino TV: A History, Dr. Beltrán explores how Latino and Latina writers and TV show runners since the 2000s have produced compelling programs that depict Latina/os with complexity and nuance, and how Latina series creators have made a particular impact since the 2010s.

Mary Beltrán is Professor of Media Studies in the Department of Radio-Television-Film and a faculty affiliate of Mexican American & Latina/o Studies and Women’s and Gender Studies at the University ofTexas at Austin. Her publications include Latino TV: A History, Latina/o Stars in U.S. Eyes, and the co-edited anthology Mixed Race Hollywood.
