University Forum- Quinceañera Style and the Rise of Conspicuous Consumption Citizenship

When

Nov. 15, 2022, 7:30pm to 9pm

Description

Quinceañera celebrations are practiced in Latinx communities throughout the Americas, but in the United States, the ritual has evolved from a largely religious ceremony to an elaborate party where social status takes center stage. This talk will consider how social negotiation and consumerism function in the coming-of-age celebration and the impact of normalizing spectacles of luxury in Latinx communities.
