Mapping LATINX Life, Culture and Politics Worldwide
Reflections on the Evolving Nature of Latinx Identity, Culture & Politics
Why We Founded the Global Latinidades Project at the University of California, Santa Barbara
Who are Latinx people? What does Latinidades signify? And what is the Global Latinidades Project? Well, it’s complicated, very complicated, and controversial, with very many points of disagreement that one might call a general dissensus… and this is a good thing!

Student Researchers Propelling the Field of Latinx Studies Towards New Global Horizons
Alejandro Ollin Prado, PhD Student
My research investigates the local-global dialectic in contemporary Chicanx communities in global Los Angeles, California. Through a focus on culture, labor, urban development, and logistics, I explore the transnational components of contemporary Chicanidad as it engages in complex transcultural exchanges with Asian Americans and broader Chinese international capital. The Global Latinidades Project has enabled me to develop this research by engaging scholars in local and national venues as well as international ones in Cuba and China. This research and international dialogue, I hope, will help us continue to gain ever more complex materialist understandings of Chicanidad in a global context.
