Event Category: 
Texas Folklife Event
Event Date: 
Thu Dec 12, 2019 - 6:00PM to 8:00PM

Join us at the Texas Folklife Gallery Thursday December 12th to celebrate the release of Dr. Rachel Valentina González's latest book Quinceañera Style: Social Belongings and Latinx Consumer Identities. Resistencia bookstore will have copies of the book available for sale and Chulita Vinyl Club will be DJing a set.    

“This is a great book—a sophisticated, intersectional, and transnational project. González takes an innovative approach to quinceañeras that considers the complex, post-nationalist, global economy as well as some post-ethnic but gendered practices.”

Free and open to the public with RSVP!

This event is supported in part by the board and members of Texas Folklife, Red Salmon Arts, The University of Texas at Austin Department of Mexican American & Latina/o Studies, and by awards from the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department and the Texas Commission on the Arts.
