Assistant Professor of Applied Theater Rachel DeSoto Jackson is featured this month in a new spotlight section, “Latino Like Me,” on the web-based scholarly platform Panoramas. “Latino Like Me” seeks to expand dialogue about the vastness of Latino culture and identity by featuring different Latinos from the Pittsburgh community to foster a thoughtful and constructive discussion about different forms of identity.
The Panoramas platform, hosted by the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Latin American Studies, creates a space to foster academic discussion and thoughtful dialogue on about Latin American and Caribbean issues.
“By enabling a voice for scholars, students, policy makers, and others to engage in constructive commentary on relevant current and historical topics, the forum also serves as an academic resource to worldwide educational audiences.”
