Dr. Denise Sandoval, The Lowrider Scholar

Episode 84


Dr. Denise Sandoval, aka The Lowrider Scholar, sits with LWL to talk about the politics, philosophy, aesthetics and art of riding low. Denise schools us on issues of gender, class and race surrounding the art of curating Chicanx lowrider exhibitions. Also, Dr. Sandoval, FavyFav and Babelito discuss the complicated history of using an x in Latinx studies and the reasons why it may be more exclusive than inclusive. Dr. Sandoval tells us not only that "knowledge is power", but more importantly, it is what you do with that knowledge that constitutes real power. What does it mean to be a lowrider? How does somebody like Dr. Sandoval deals with the sexism of the lowriding culture? Find out about some of these issues and stick around till the end to hear some awesome literary recommendations. And as always, remember to send your questions to AskLWLPod@gmail.com and we might read them on a future episode! #supportbrownpodcasts #supportlatinxpodcasts #lwlpod.
