Greetings!



My name is Noris Rios and I am a doctoral student in counseling psychology at the University of Miami. As part of my dissertation research, I am conducting a survey of impostor feelings and experiences among Hispanic or Latin American students. I would greatly appreciate if you could participate and/or forward this study to potential participants. Participation in the study is expected to take approximately 15 minutes.



Participants must self-identify as Hispanic, Latino/a/x, or having an ethnic background from Spanish or Portuguese speaking areas of Latin America. Participants must also be currently enrolled in a college or university program, read English proficiently, have spent their formative years in the US, and be over the age of 18.





To qualify for participation in the study, please click here: https://umiami.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_ewIGPAU0tzdAhtb





Participation is confidential and voluntary, meaning participants may withdraw from the study at any time. If you have any questions, you can contact me at [email protected].



The proposed study does not pose any anticipated risk and is approved by the University of Miami Institutional Review Board. The university’s Human Subjects Research Office can be contacted at [email protected].



Thank you in advance for your time!
On Prof. Tom Baginski’s recent trip to Morelia, Michoacán (México), he gave an interview on Mexican TV. The moderators, Manuel Ángel Cortés and Bulmaro Velázquez, interviewed Tom as part of their TV show “Café Nostalgia”. This particular episode focused on 1960s and 1970s singers Angélica María, "La novia de México" (Mexico's sweetheart), and actor/singer Enrique Guzmán and their influence on popular European music at the time.

See the short clip below. A longer version will air on “Mexicanal” in the U.S. in spring 2020 when the all-new season of “Café Nostalgia” starts. In Charleston, Comcast broadcasts Mexicanal on channel 616.
