Latino Roots, Oregon Branches

BY JASON STONE

2017 Latino Roots celebration

“You come to college to take classes like this one.

“It’s part history, part sociology, part anthropology, part journalism and part documentary filmmaking, but it’s all about the experience. The 400-level Latino Roots course is an example of the many compelling, hands-on, educational opportunities we offer at the University of Oregon. With an eye on history and a hand in technology, this course combines the theoretical with the practical and empowers students to apply their new knowledge in the real world.

“An intensive, two-term, 20-week course, Latino Roots is offered every other academic year. During the first term, centered in a formal classroom setting, students learn about the history of racial identity formation in Oregon. Next, the class moves to the Cinema Studies Lab in Knight Library for hands-on training in the use of audio-video technology and editing software, as well as learning the art of documentary storytelling.”

Immigrants’ struggle is really our struggle | Opinion | Eugene Register-Guard

In the midst of this political season’s hateful hullabaloo about building a higher wall, all of us whose ancestors came to this country from other lands must in good conscience challenge ourselves to consider the personal story — and to take a closer look at history.
