Research
For my Masters thesis, I would like to venture into how popular culture is received and consumed by various groups at York university. I came across the term “popular culture” when my lecturer, Nanabanyin discussed it in a Mass Communication class in my first year in the university. My major interest in popular culture stems from the fact that it has proved over time to be a resilient and useful tool for assessing the attitudes of the masses in modern society. Studying popular culture will therefore go a long way to help understand the masses in the society with respect to policy making.

Degrees
Bachelor degree in Science of Communication. UNAM

Research
After many years of minimum participation in Canadian politics, the Hispanic Community in Toronto is starting a movement to participate actively and directly in politics in three levels of power. From volunteers to candidates, this visible minority is eager to be more visible and to get more representation. This movement is not being reflected in mainstream media, only in ethnic media. It is necessary to create an alternative product, such as a short documentary, to record this movement.

Additional Information
Isabel Inclan has worked as a journalist for more than 20 years, in both Mexico and in Canada. She is a collaborator with New Canadian Media. She worked as a Press Office coordinator at the Consulate-General of Mexico in Toronto for seven years (2007-2014). In 2017, in commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation, and in collaboration with the Institute for Creative Exchange, Isabel produced the short video “Canada 150-150 Mexicans,” which portrays Mexicans who are contributing to the development of Canada. The video was screened at seven events in Toronto and Ottawa (https://bit.ly/35pUsoG). In 2016, she organized the first forum of Hispanic journalists at Glendon College with the support of Professor Alejandro Zamora. In 2015, Isabel was honoured as one of the “10 most influential Hispanic Canadians”, an annual award presented by the Canadian Hispanic Alliance.

My thesis will explore the intersection of race, gender, religion, class, and status within the context of hip-hop music in North America. It will consider the implications of hip-hop music as a tool for activism as well as for bridging gaps in the North-American Muslim woman's multiple identities.
