Latino Advocacy Council in Eugene | The League of United Latin American Citizens approves the expansion here as its first in Oregon

“Even with 900-plus local councils scattered across the country, the League of United Latin American Citizens has never had a presence in Oregon — until now. Lane County is making history as the first Oregon LULAC council since the organization was established in 1929, and Juan Carlos Valle said he is honored to be the local council’s first president.” Read more …
The Center for Comparative Immigration Studies (CCIS) at UC San Diego has launched a new blog (http://ccis.ucsd.edu/category/cir2013) that will provide analyses of the comprehensive immigration reform debate as it unfolds. The purpose of the CIR 2013 blog is to provide scholars and the public with analyses that speak directly to the question of whether comprehensive immigration reform (CIR) will pass in 2013. These analyses will use social science research methods to answer practical, policy-relevant questions.
We have extended the deadline to apply for the 2013 Summer Institute for Oregon Middle and High School teachers to APRIL 15, 2013.
Understanding the Many Faces of Latin America through Art and History: Race, Ethnicity, and Nationalism
We are excited to invite Oregon teachers to apply to participate in our 2013 Summer Institute for Oregon Middle School and High School Teachers titled, Understanding the Many Faces of Latin America through Art and History: Race, Ethnicity, and Nationalism. The Institute will take place at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art (JSMA) on the University of Oregon campus in Eugene, Oregon, from June 23-28, 2013. Completed applications are due by April 15, 2013. We anticipate selecting around 20 teachers to whom we will offer a modest stipend of $250 for their participation, room (for out of town participants who have to travel more than 60 miles) and board, as well as 30 hours of professional development credit. We will let selected teachers know by May 1, 2013.

Trafalgar is a series of linked stories related by Trafalgar Medrano, inter-galactic merchant (everything but arms) and pillar of the business community in his native Rosario, Argentina. Amalia Gladhart is head, UO Department of Romance Languages, and professor of Spanish.

“In August 2012—just as incoming University of Oregon President Michael Gottfredson was headed to Woodburn, Oregon, for one of his first public appearances at the Fiesta Mexicana—the UO’s Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies (CLLAS) was also focused on Woodburn with the release of the book The Story of PCUN and the Farmworker Movement in Oregon (CLLAS, 2012).” Read more…

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
