The Spring 2017 issue features essays on the impact of collective efficacy on immigrants' stress, theater as community protest, Latina/o workers in the communications industry, and the contribution of corridos to Mexican immigrants' identity. 
Since its founding, 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 and the fastest growing population 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 grant and fellowship program.


The CSRC’s crowdfunding campaign for the exhibition Home—So Different, So Appealing raised over $17,500!  Thank you for your support! The show opens June 11 at LACMA.
