News: USC Professor to Discuss History of Latino Journalism on Nov. 15

Dr. Felix F. Gutierrez, a professor of Journalism and Communication in the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication and an affiliate professor of American Studies and Ethnicity, will be speaking at Pasadena City College on Nov. 15 at 10:30 a.m. in Creveling Lounge.

Dr. Gutierrez will be presenting a documentary and lecture titled, “Voices for Justice: 200 Years of Latino Newspapers in the United States,” in which he documents the issues covered by U.S. Latino newspapers since 1808 and the journalists who covered the stories. In concert with his talk, Dr. Gutierrez has curated an exhibit on the same topic at the PCC Shatford Library.

Dr. Gutierrez's career in higher education includes tenured faculty positions at USC and California State University, Northridge; administrative posts at USC, Stanford University, and California State University, Los Angeles; and visiting appointments at Columbia University, The Claremont Colleges, and the University of Texas at Austin. He was the first executive director of the California Chicano News Media Association from 1978 through 1980. In the late 1980s he covered media issues on a weekly basis for The Associated Press Los Angeles Bureau, and in the mid-1980s was a part-time reporter and columnist for the Pasadena Star-News.

A native of East Los Angeles, Dr. Gutierrez earned a B.A. in Social Studies from California State University, Los Angeles, an M.S. from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, and an A.M. and Ph.D. in Communication from Stanford University.

This event is sponsored by the College Diversity Initiative.
