Thank you, Diana.
I agree in the value of having at least one presenter who can discuss  
theoretical and methodological issues for better studying/researching  
Latino-oriented media.  And if I am called upon to be at least one of  
those panelists, I will gladly do so. For such presentation I would  
build on a recently drafted chapter precisely on such matters.

Let me know the outcome.
