On Course With Liberal Arts: COVID-19 In Latino Communities

Since March, many social scientists whose research centers on Latino communities have pivoted their projects to account for the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on this highly vulnerable population. In June, the Latino Research Institute launched an initiative to bring together researchers from various institutions to share their latest findings, research methods, and more. A few of these researchers reflected on lessons learned so far and what a plan of action may look like for the Latino community. 

This On Course with Liberal Arts event was live-streamed on September 29, 2020, by the College of Liberal Arts at The University of Texas at Austin.
