One of the panel speakers was Dr.Myra Mendible, a scholar who's work I greatly admire - I am pretty much obsessed with reading anything she publishes. She has the ability to meld her experience as a Cuban/American woman while clearing breaking down contemporary culture and trends in relation to the female body and latin identity (I'm modestly summarizing and not even getting close to doing her work justice).
I was totally bummed to not have been there for the lectures but, I reached out to both Dr. Myra and Jill to express my gratitud for the work they are doing, and received warm responses. It is work and research such as theirs that gets me further pumped enough to have the cojones to do the work I do, scary as it always is to pull from your intimate experiences, and expose them for all to see.
Tambien, if you are interested in reading about the big booty trend.......I suggest this!
