The Work of Maggie Rivas-Rodriguez

Maggie Rivas-Rodríguez is a professor of journalism at the University of Texas. She has recently taken to task PBS for a Ken Burns documentary on WW II which (suprise) rendered invisible the role of Latino/as (and Native Americans). The column (which you can read by clicking on the title of this post) where her efforts are highlighted appeared a few days ago. Why do I bring this up here? Because this case is emblematic of a trend in many disciplines, including poetry.

These are baby steps where this weblog is concerned. More later.
