Professor Esther Díaz Martín is featured in Sounding Out!

The sound studies blog Sounding Out! is currently featuring a series of posts submitted by the Latinx Sound Cultures Studies research working. This week a post by Professor Esther Díaz Martín co-written with graduate fellow Kristian E. Vasquez (UC Santa Barbara) ruminates on "Xicanacimiento: Life-Giving Sonics of Critical Consciousness." The post re-imagines the mixtape as a virtual Xicanx repertoire that can be open-ended and multigenerational encompassing songs and sonics that prompt critical consciousness about 500 años de lucha y resistencia. Check it out here: https://soundstudiesblog.com/ The LCSC working group is funded by the Crossing Latinidades Humanities Research Initiative through a grant sponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
