The UCLA Chicano Studies Department has some very interesting presentations and programming during the week. Wish I didn’t have to work–darn! For the price of parking and some gas, you are invited to join these important topics taking place (mostly) at the UCLA Chicano Studies Department.
I just saw this week’s Discussion Panel and Press Conference—and you are in luck, it’s just downtown. For those of us looking at ourselves, our actions and (especially) our speech critically, this dialogue is crucial.

In a groundbreaking pilot study conducted by the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center (CSRC) in partnership with the National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC), a team of researchers have developed a replicable methodology to quantify hate speech in commercial broadcasting—i.e., speech that expresses prejudice against ethnic, racial, religious, and/or sexual minorities. At this event, the principal investigators will officially release the study report. A panel discussion will include two other scholars working in this area.
