The Department of Mexican American and Latina/o Studies (MALS) presents a job talk by Salvador Vidal-Ortiz, entitled, "Queer and racialized religious spaces: an ethnography of gender and sexuality in U.S. Santería practice."

Drawing on ethnographic and interview based data to show the complex negotiations in Santería, and using the Queer of Color Critique, this presentation engages the concept of the multiply minoritized, and it shows what Santería sacred spaces produce in terms of sexuality, gender, race, and new religiosity.
