Latinos: The Not so New Kids on the Block

Juan David Coronado, Central Connecticut State University

Wednesday, June 9 at 2 p.m.

Often over simplified, American history has often ignored the rich and diverse ethnic enclaves that have made significant contributions to the making of the U.S. The Latino experience has often gone unnoticed and often Latinos have been treated as a permanent immigrant group. This talk will place Latinos in proper historical context and relate their importance to the U.S.

Juan David CoronadoJuan David Coronado is assistant professor of Latino and Public History at Central Connecticut State University. He earned a Ph.D. in twentieth century U.S. history at Texas Tech University in 2013. A social historian, Dr. Coronado’s research interests include the Latino military experience, Chicana/o history, oral history, public history, sports history, and Latina/o history with an emphasis on class and gender.

His award-winning book, "I'm Not Gonna Die in this Damn Place”: Manliness, Identity, and Survival of the Mexican American Vietnam Prisoner of War (2018), lies at the intersection of Mexican American, military, oral and U.S. history while also furthering dialogue on gender.
