In order to encourage existing projects and collaborations and to facilitate new ones, CLLAS announces its fourth round of small grant competitions for funds to be used during the 2013-2014 academic year (July 1, 2013 — through June 30, 2014). We expect to disburse two to three grants for $2,000 to $3,000 each. These grants are specifically intended to support research that fits within the CLLAS mission. Projects that include collaboration between UO units, involve the wider Eugene/Springfield or Oregon communities, or propose other forms of community engagement are particularly welcome. In recognition of the fact that not all disciplines include collaborative models of research, such as fields within the humanities, CLLAS will consider projects that involve nontraditional forms of collaboration and/or community engagement. We are especially interested in projects that have the potential to put Latino and Latin American Studies into conversation with one another. › Continue reading

Second event in “The Borders Within: Immigrants, Race, and the Politics of Surveillance and Enforcement in the United States” symposia series 
- 2-3:30 p.m.—Roundtable featuring LAURETTA FREDERKING , University of Portland; MARGARET HU , Duke University; and KAYSE JAMA , Center for Intercultural Organizing.
- 4-5:30 p.m.—Keynote address, “Fracturing Our ‘More Perfect Union’: Post-9/11 Discriminatory Profiling and Surveillance,” featuring HINA SHAMSI , director of the ACLU’s National Security Project. In this event, we explore how immigration politics and the lives of newcomers are transformed in perilous times of war and emergency, with a focus on how security priorities after 9/11 recast the national immigration debate and policy-making process. Equally important, we seek to understand how official programs of surveillance and profiling—funded and advanced by both the Bush and Obama administrations—shape the experiences of Muslim and Arab Americans.
The final symposium in the series, Place and Belonging: Policing Immigrant Lives at the State and Local Scales , takes place Friday, May 3, 2 p.m. in the Giustina Ballroom, Ford Alumni Center.
Sponsored by the Wayne Morse Center’s Migration Project, the Savage Endowment for International Relations and Peace, The Americas in a Globalized World Initiative, the Global Oregon Initiative, and Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies.

Youth Conversations in Oaxaca, California, and Oregon
A CLLAS Grantee Presentation with Dr. Stephanie Wood
This project has led to the establishment of an international collaborative that fosters multilingual conversations around the themes of migration, culture and language retention – conversations that are recorded, archived, and made accessible for promoting research and teaching within various disciplines, including anthropology, history, linguistics, planning and public policy, journalism, women’s and gender studies, and ethnic studies. Through this project, we invite the participation of Oaxacan youth living in the states of Oaxaca, California, and Oregon, involve them in these conversations, and strengthen transborder community ties. › Continue reading
