Emerging Latinx Communities Group

With the support of Pitt's Center for Latin American Studies, this group explores: 

  1. the problems Latinos in small yet rapidly growing populations face
  2. how to solve those problems

We are always looking for new writing and research collaborations! 

Open to all interested: students, faculty, staff, and practitioners from Pitt and beyond. 

We open meetings 30 minutes early and stay for 30 minutes beyond for extra networking time! 


The Emerging Latinx Communities Group typically holds several focused writing sessions each term. Colleagues from disciplines such as public health, education, social work, anthropology, business, medicine, dental health, and psychology have attended from the University of Pittsburgh as well as Duquesne and Carnegie Mellon Universities. 

We welcome all disciplines from any university and community affiliation! This is an opportunity to work on writing your paper, thesis, manuscript, grant proposal, etc., in a supportive quiet environment. 


Thanks for a great spring term. Fall 2021 dates coming soon!

At our most recent meeting, we discussed the JAMA "no doctor is racist" issue. In February of 2021, JAMA published a podcast to discuss structural racism. The host made "strange" assertions. Sarah Sanders (BCHS '22) guided a discussion of "How Whiteness Works: JAMA and the Refusals of White Supremacy", by Clarence, c. Gravlee, Somatoshpere, March 27, 2021
