Shawn Washington
Department:Unity Multicultural Education Center (UMEC)

Hector Amaya, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Media Studies at the University of Virginia and is an important, emerging voice in communication and Latino studies.

Dr. Amaya will discuss how the development of incarceration

centers for undocumented immigrants (including infants and children) post-9/11,

developed from a fertile ground in which the media and journalists showed extreme

deference to government authority and glorified the security state. This presentation will aim to raise cultural awareness about existing forms of oppression based on difference in the United States.
