Syracuse University presents its Latine Heritage Month 2023 celebration Friday, Sept. 15, through Sunday, Oct. 15. Led by Multicultural Affairs, students, faculty and staff have opportunities to learn about the history, culture and contributions of Americans whose ancestry can be traced to over 20 Spanish-speaking countries in Latin America, including Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean. Alongside campus partners, celebrations include performances, networking, sporting events and more.
This year, the naming has shifted from “Latinx” to “Latine.” Latine is a gender-neutral form of the word Latino, created by gender non-binary and feminist communities in Spanish-speaking countries. The objective of the term is to remove gender from Spanish, by replacing it with the gender-neutral Spanish letter E, which can already be found in words like estudiante.
