“Latinas and Citizenship in Oregon”
Author(s): Marcela Mendoza
Oregon Historical Quarterly, Vol. 113, No. 3 (Fall 2012), pp. 444-451
Published by: Oregon Historical Society
Abstract: Marcela Mendoza considers the relationship between family and citizenship in Oregon’s Latino community, particularly by looking at how women’s work both maintains the continuity of cultural heritage and facilitates settlement into new communities. Drawing on the work of other scholars and her own experience with recent immigrants, Mendoza makes suggestions about how historians may investigate the history of Latina women and citizenship in Oregon.
Marcela Mendoza is an affiliated faculty member of the UO Department of Anthropology and executive director of CentroLatino Americano in Eugene, Oregon.

The Bartolome de las Casas Lecture in Latin American Studies
THE U.S.-MEXICO BORDER THROUGH THE EYES OF A WRITER
A lecture by Guillermo Arriaga
Writer and director Guillermo Arriaga discusses the influence of border issues on his work. Arriaga is renowned for his fragmentary, nonlinear narratives that connect characters across national borders, most notably in the “death trilogy” he wrote and Alfonso Inarritu directed: Amores Perros, 21 Grams, and Babel. Arriaga’s The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, directed by Tommy Lee Jones, deals directly with the tensions on the U.S.-Mexican border, a terrain that Arriaga has known well since his childhood. He believes that the border between Mexico and the United States is filled with stories of love and friendship, of violence and cruelty, of hope and desire, and of redemption and criminality. The humanity of these stories can be lost when analysis is done from afar and in the aggregate, rather than from the empathetic position of the storyteller.
