Journalist, author to discuss Latino research challenges

Author: Shannon Chapla

Roberto Suro, director of the Pew Hispanic Center and a longtime journalist and author, will deliver a talk titled “Beguiling Mysteries and Known Unknowns: The Research Challenges Posed by the Latino Experience” at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday (Feb. 24) in 210 McKenna Hall at the University of Notre Dame.

Sponsored by the Pew Charitable Trusts and Notre Dame’s Center for the Study of Latino Religion, the lecture is free and open to the public.

Suro, the author of “Strangers Among Us: Latino Lives in a Changing America,” has more than 25 years of experience researching and writing about Latinos, most recently for The Washington Post. He also served as a foreign correspondent for Time magazine and The New York Times in Latin America, Europe and the Middle East.

In his lecture, Suro will discuss both what is known and what is not known about the character of ethnic identity, assimilation patterns, and the shape of future immigration flows ? topics that often frustrate researchers examining the growth of the Latino population.
