As a department, we’re thinking a lot about how we can bring our research to people who live and work outside of the academy, and we’re always very excited when a student or faculty member reaches a wider than usual audience. We’re excited to share that, last week, the NPR program Latino USA ran a story about the recruitment of Latinas/os and other people of color into the US armed forces. For the story, Latino USA spoke to UT AMS PhD candidate Irene Garza, whose dissertation is on this very topic. You can listen to the story here and read more about her research here. Congratulations, Irene!
