Dr Rodolfo Jacobo was invited to speak to members of the Department of Defense on Wednesday, October the 9th on ” Cultural Hybridism and the Creation of the 3rd Space”. The lecture will focus on the experience of of the Mexican-origin community in the United States who have largely been marked for a struggle for cultural space. For renowned scholar, David G. Gutierrez (2008), this created “third space” is the place where historically Mexicans in the United States, have “attempted to mediate the profound sense of displacement” as they struggled historically with the racialization and marginalization of their culture. The event will take place in San Diego to a crowd including high ranking members of the military. It is part of Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. We expect photos when you get back Rudy! Terrific!
