Winter 2018_CLLAS_Notes

In the latest CLLAS Notes, you can learn about three field research projects carried out by CLLAS’s first round of Tinker Foundation grantees, including doctoral candidate Evan Shenkin’s study of indigenous land struggles in eastern Bolivia; master’s candidate Emily Masucci’s intergenerational look at indigenous women’s organizing in Manaus, Brazil; and master’s candidate Brenda Garcia Millan’s fascinating and timely investigation of contemporary displacement patterns and responses of Haitians at the U.S.-Mexico Border.

This winter issue of CLLAS Notes includes an article about CLLAS’s Town Hall conversation between activist journalist José Antonio Vargas and SOJC professor Chris Chávez. 

CLLAS director Gabriela Martínez highlights the many fall events sponsored by CLLAS, including a teach-in on Puerto Rico in response to the tragic hurricane season that devastated the island and its inhabitants.

Latino Roots coordinator Tamara LeRoy notes the busy year for the Latino Roots Traveling Exhibit, which included her attractive visual redesign of the panels. We are all grateful to SELCO Community Credit Union for  renewing their support for this project with a generous grant of $20,000 over three years that will ensure the continued circulation of the exhibit, as well as expansion and redesign of the Latino Roots website, where the exhibit will have an online home along with other resources from the project.

You can also learn about recently published books and journal articles, as well as news and updates on research action projects and faculty and graduate student achievements.

All this and more are included in this Winter 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
