Center of Mexican American Studies

Welcome

The Department of Mexican American and Latina/o Studies, the Center for Mexican American Studies, and the Latino Research Initiative comprise a unique cluster of units that serve a critical academic, outreach, and research mission at The University of Texas at Austin. We are grateful to those who have worked diligently to bring us to where we are, and in an era constituted by uncertainty, we commit ourselves to continuing the transformative work that is at the core of our mission. Together, we stand proudly in solidarity with latinx, black, indigenous, muslim, brown, undocumented, incarcerated, poor, disabled, trans, and queer peoples — and those at the many intersections. We take inspiration from the powerful legacies of resistance to white supremacy, settler colonialism, and gender violence that inform our daily work as scholars, teachers, and administrators. We remain committed to supporting students and the entire MALS, CMAS, and LRI communities in the ongoing struggle to realize a fiercely just and affirmative future.
