225 Carolina Presents: The UNC Latina/o Studies Program–Past, Present, and Future
September 23 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us in celebrating 22 Years of Culture and Exploration at UNC Chapel Hill!
The UNC Latina/o Studies Program is the first and oldest of its kind in the Southeast, initiated in 1999 through courses and a speaker series, then developed into an undergraduate minor that was made official Fall 2004, and subsequently expanded through many other components since then. The Director of the program, along with undergraduate and graduate students associated with it, will present some of its scholarly, pedagogical, curatorial, and creative contributions to our department, the university, the eastern seaboard, and our region in its relation to other parts of the globe. The Director will give a brief history of the program, as it began Fall 1999 with The UNC Latina/o Cultures Speakers Series that has brought to campus over 100 scholars, creative writers, and performers. Next, our Affiliated Teaching Assistant Professor will offer insights on the program’s contributions to building communities across and beyond UNC’s campus, sharing Latina/o cultural productions, and promoting undergraduate and graduate research and professional development. This presentation will be followed by our graduate students, who will speak about their cutting-edge research, teaching, and program building. Finally, some of our undergraduate minors will share their exciting research and other creative Latina/o Studies endeavors.
