Lecture Explores Increasing Demand for Chicano Studies

Monday Apr 29, 2013 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM | Texas Union (UNB 3.502)

The Center for Mexican American Studies is hosting a 2013 Américo Paredes Distinguished Lecture by Abel Valenzuela, Jr., chair of the César E. Chávez Department for Chicana/o Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles.

He will examine how demographic changes and an increasing pan-ethnic Latino frame bodes for Chicano Studies. U.S. demographics highlight the increasing share of children and descendants from Latin America, principally from Mexico, Central America, and the Spanish speaking Caribbean, but also increasingly from Columbia, Brazil, and Chile.
