Brandon Valeriano, Professor in Political Science will discuss his work, which challenges the notion that the choice of a person’s favored national team can measure cultural assimilation and loyalty to America. The tendency for Latinos in the United States to support Mexican (or other national) soccer teams is taken as a problematic signal that Latinos are not assimilating into mainstream American society. The question of cultural assimilation is critical to the ongoing debate regarding immigration and the influx of Latinos in the United States.
