The University of Oregon’s emergence as a partner with Oregon’s growing and vibrant Latino population will be celebrated in an event on Monday, June 6, at 5 p.m. at the University of Oregon’s Knight Library, 1501 Kincaid Street, Eugene.

“The PCUN-UO Partnership” will celebrate the donation of the historic papers of Pineros y Campesinos Unidos del Noroeste (Northwest Treeplanters and Farmworkers United) to the UO Libraries’ Special Collections and University Archives, which will preserve, organize, and make the papers available for research projects conducted by students, faculty, and others.

The event will also showcase videos made by UO students who have taken a sequence of Latino Roots courses facilitated by the UO’s Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies (CLLAS) and taught by UO faculty members Gabriela Martínez and Lynn Stephen. The courses offer students a theoretical, documentary, and ethnographic understanding of the processes of Latino immigration and settlement in Oregon during the past 150 years, while teaching them how to produce video documentaries from oral history interviews. › Continue reading
