Book Presentation and Conversatorio: The Aztlán Mexican Studies Reader, 1974-2016
Join us for a book presentation and conversation for the award-winning The Aztlán Mexican Studies Reader, 1974–2016. The presentation will include author and UCLA Medal recipient John Rechy, musicians Aldo Acuña and Rolando "Roco" Ortega, CSRC associate director Charlene Villaseñor Black, and contributors Audrey Harris, Juanita Heredia, Sandra Ruiz, and Ariel Tumbaga. The presentation will be moderated by editor Héctor Calderón, professor of Spanish and Portuguese.
The Aztlán Mexican Studies Reader explores the ongoing cultural and political connections between Chicana/o and Mexican history. Edited and introduced by Calderón, this collection of essays makes a rigorous case for the contributions of Chicana/o studies to the transnational study of Mexico.
Books will be available for sale, and a reception and book signing will follow the presentation.
This event is co-sponsored by the CSRC and the UCLA Department of Spanish and Portuguese.
This event is free and open to the public.
