Welcome to my thesis!

When I was doing research for my history thesis, I often found myself cruising the stacks of the library, poking around in dusty corners. As I slaved away for a year on this 70-page research paper, I often found myself struck with terror at the thought of my thesis becoming just another dusty research paper. I would often take something to check-out and the librarian would chuckle, "Wow! This one hasn't been checked out since the 1950s!"

That's a frightening thought. So in fear for the mortality of my poor, little history thesis, I am posting the whole thing here on the internet in the hopes that someone might be interested. I am splitting it into sections and I will post the complete PDF should you prefer it in that format.

Enjoy!

Hola Sierra,
Could you please share via email (or better yet post) you full name? I'd like to cite you for a manuscript I'm writing that alludes to the history of SL radio. Your blogs are anonymous and show not contact information other than this space. I look forward to your prompt reply. By the way, please consider adding to your sources the historical overview that my colleagues and I wrote about Latino oriented media some 27 years ago: Subervi-Vélez, Federico A., Charles Ramírez Berg, Patricia Constantakis-Valdéz, Chon Noriega, Diana Ríos, and Kenton Wilkinson. 1994. “Mass Communication and Hispanics.” In Handbook of Hispanic Cultures in the United States: Sociology. Edited by Félix Padilla, 304-356. Houston: Arte Público Press.
