Thanks to dr. Martinez, on February 15 dr. Jason Ruiz, Associate Professor of American Studies at the University of Notre Dame, will be in the beautiful city of Groningen to talk about Narcomedia, and the AcademicCie is hereby inviting you all to come. In his talk, dr. Ruiz will give a historical overview of the representation of Latinos and Latinas in relation to drugs and criminality from early silent films to more contemporary work, and will then continue with examining the most recent cycle of Latinx drug films and series, like Breaking Bad and Narcos, to argue that we are entering a period of renewed cultural interest in Latinxs’ roles in the international drug trade. Though it will not be a promotional talk to start a drug dealing business, it will definitely be very interesting, so we hope to see you all at 7pm in the Heymanszaal (Academy building).

The talk will also be available for non-EPU members, so if you know someone who might find this interesting, they are more than welcome.
