Fátima Suárez, PhD candidate, Department of Sociology University of California, Santa Barbara, and Mellon fellow at SAR
Fátima Suárez presents on her conversations with 60 Latino fathers in California about what fatherhood means to them and what significance it plays in their lives. In contrast to widespread academic information about Latino men and fathers, Suárez suggests that work, family relationships, histories, and past traumas shape Latino men’s experiences of fatherhood, thus dispelling the notion of the Latino father as a unitary subject. Suárez will speak about her research and the possible implications of the data for Latinx studies and for society as a whole.
This event is free and open to the public. The presentation will take place in the Eric S. Dobkin Boardroom on the SAR campus. Advanced registration is encouraged.
