MetadataShow full metadata
Isis Campos will present the Authority List, a project that highlights the authorship found in US Latinx periodicals in the United States through 1960. This presentation will describe the development of the project until its current stage of network analysis and directory. Through a variety of writers from different nationalities and backgrounds the project aims to defy general norms by establishing and documenting the Latinx presence and community that existed and exists in this nation. By analyzing these voices and giving them a platform to reach a broader audience, the Authority List looks to break down societal barriers highlighting the complexity of the writers represented in the newspapers and the community that they built.
