The Latino Caucus in Political Science, also known as El Sector Latino de Ciencia Politica, was established to both promote and protect the professional development and well-being of Latina/os in political science and those interested in the study of Latina/o Politics. Founded on September 4, 1998 at the annual meeting of the American Political Science Association (APSA), the Latino Caucus is an officially recognized Related Group of the APSA. The five elected officers are responsible for informing and involving the general membership regarding all matters related to the mission of the Caucus. To learn more about the Caucus, click here.
Prof. Efrén Perez (Vanderbilt) wins the 2016 "Latino Politics Best Book Award" for his book Unspoken Politics: Implicit Attitudes and Political Thinking (Cambridge University Press)
This book explains why people acquire implicit attitudes, how they affect political thinking, and where in the mass public they have their strongest - and weakest - influences. A theoretically ambitious book, Unspoken Politics establishes that implicit attitudes exist outside the tightly controlled confines of the laboratory, showing that they emerge in a public opinion survey setting, which underlines their real-world impact.
