In the latest edition of CLLAS Notes, you can read about field research in Oaxaca carried out by 2017 Tinker grantee Timothy Herrera and learn about dissertation research focused on the intersection of gender, race, and disability conducted by CLLAS graduate student research grantee Katie Warden.
Kristin Yarris, Brenda Garcia Millan, and Karla Schmidt-Murillo write about the collaborative research they are carrying out that investigates how local communities are responding to the current hostile climate toward immigrants and refugees.
This spring issue of CLLAS Notes includes an article about the CLLAS 2018 symposium “Justice Across Borders: Gender, Race, and Migration in the Americas.” A report on the “UO Puerto Rico Project: Hurricane Maria and Its Aftermath,” written by CLLAS executive board member Alaí Reyes-Santos and one of her ethnic studies students, provides an excellent look at teaching through action.
CLLAS director Gabriela Martínez highlights the many events sponsored throughout the 2017-18 academic year by CLLAS. A report from Feather Crawford on the Dreamers Working Group provides insight into how UO is creating a community of welcome through allyship trainings and other advocacy efforts.
You can also learn about recently published books and journal articles, as well as news and updates on the achievements of faculty and graduate students.
All this and more are included in this Spring 2018 edition of CLLAS Notes, the twice-yearly newsletter for the Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies. Watch for yours soon in your campus or home mailbox, or view it now online.
