The CSRC co-presents new work by Gronk at the L.A. Art Show, a new blog on the CSRC Post, vision talks by CSRC director candidates, a new edition of The Chicano Studies Reader, and more in this month's newsletter!
CSRC director Chon A. Noriega has won the 2019 Distinguished Editor award from the Council of Editors of Learned Journals (CELJ). In addition, Aztlán won the CELJ Best Public Intellectual Special Issue for “Dossier: Gringo Injustice,” which focuses on Latinos and the law (Fall 2018).
This volume, edited by Colin Gunckel, presents photographs drawn from the more than 25,000 images in the CSRC’s La Raza Photograph Collection and from the exhibition La Raza, curated by Luis C. Garza and Amy Scott, at the Autry Museum of the American West.
The Strachwitz Frontera Collection is the largest repository of commercially produced Mexican and Mexican American vernacular recordings in existence. It contains more than 160,000 individual recordings. Many are rare, and some are one of a kind.
Rotating exhibitions drawn from CSRC collections are on display inside the library and in the vitrine at the entrance. Exhibitions are free to the public. Image: “Corky” © 2006 Raul Caracoza. From the Self Help Graphics and Art Research Collection.
Since its founding in 1969, the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center (CSRC) has played a pivotal role in the development of scholarly research on the Chicano-Latino population, which is now the largest minority group in the United States. Our research mission is supported by five distinct components: a library with special collections archive, an academic press, collaborative research projects, public programs and community-based partnerships, and a competitive grants and fellowships program. The CSRC has received recognition from its peers and the community, including:
  • Award for Excellence in Diversity, College Art Association (2019)
  • Editor/Publisher Award, Before Columbus Foundation (2019)
  • Diversity Award, Society of American Archivists (2012)
