“Ethnicity and Race: Identity in a Changing World”
by Janie Filoteo
2 p.m. – 3 p.m. in E-100 myworkshops.lonestar.edu
Drawing on the discipline of sociology and the methodology of autoethnography, participants will be asked to consider the differences between the terms Hispanic, Latino, race, and ethnicity.  More importantly, insight will be shared on the significance of understanding the differences between these labels.  Though considered a difficult subject, the workshop hopes to inspire dialogue amongst participants working towards inclusivity for all.  

At the end of this workshop, learners will be able to:

  1. Recognize autoethnography.
  2. Understand the difference between ethnicity and race.
  3. Interpret race as a social construction.
