Meet our 2018-2019 Officers
At the 2018 Annual Meeting in Boston, the Caucus elected our officers for the 2018-2019 academic year. Meet our new slate of officers!
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. Heather Silber Mohamed (Clark University) wins the 2018 "Latino Politics Best Book Award" for his book The New Americans? Immigration, Protest, and the Politics of Latino Identity (University Press of Kansas)
In 2006, millions of Latinos mobilized in opposition to H.R. 4437, an immigration proposal pending before the US Congress. In her new book, Heather Silber Mohamed suggests that these unprecedented protests marked a turning point for the Latino population—a point that is even more salient ten years later as the issue of immigration roils the politics of the 2016 presidential election. In The New Americans? Silber Mohamed explores the complexities of the Latino community, particularly as it is united and divided by the increasingly pressing questions of immigration.
