Professors Pedro Noguera and Aída Hurtado will be speaking on their forthcoming edited book Understanding the Disenfranchisement of Latino Men and Boys: Invisible No More (Routledge Press, June 2011). The contributors to this edited volume describe original research and new theoretical paradigms to examine and explain the severe social, educational, and economic disadvantages, hardships, and vulnerabilities experienced by Latino men and boys, ones that include high dropout rates, disproportionate levels of incarceration, and their concentration in low wage jobs. Through the application of the theoretical framework of intersectionality, the book examines the ways in which race, class, sexuality, ethnicity and gender interact to marginalize Latino men and boys in the United States and to severely limit their life chances.
