“Cyborg Chicanos, Virtual Latinas, Smartphones, and Digital Culturas
Viral, Electric Mutations of Latina/o Stereotypes in the Age of the Internet” is the title of the charla/presentation/pop-up exhibition I am bringing on the plane with me to Philly and the University of Pennsylvania Monday, February 22, 2016. I will be presenting from 6pm to 8 or so in Arch 108/109 on the main Penn campus. Help me spread the palabra by using the hashtag #mextasy on twitter, instagram, and facebook! See you soon! The event is part of Penn's cool Reclamando Nuestras Voces/ Reclaiming our Voices Penn Festival Latinx 2016
Time and again I have tipped my sombrero to the remarkable treasures to be found at Pappy's Golden Age Comics Blogzine, but now he has outdone himself with a post that jibes/gels/fuses with my #textmex and #mextasy researches/art/presentations and more.
