Book Talk: "Chicana Movidas: New Narratives of Activism and Feminism in the Movement Era"
With contributions from a wide array of scholars and activists, including leading Chicana feminists from the period, this groundbreaking anthology is the first collection of scholarly essays and testimonios that focuses on Chicana organizing, activism, and leadership in the movement years. The essays in Chicana Movidas: New Narratives of Activism and Feminism in the Movement Era (University of Texas Press, 2018) demonstrate how Chicanas enacted a new kind of politica at the intersection of race, class, gender, and sexuality, and developed innovative concepts, tactics, and methodologies that in turn generated new theories, art forms, organizational spaces, and strategies of alliance.
Join us in the CSRC Library for a panel discussion featuring co-editors and contributors Maylei Blackell, Marisela Chavez, María Eugenia Cotera, Dionne Espinoza, and Anna NietoGomez, among others. A reception will follow the discussion. Books will be available for purchase at the event.
This event is organized by the CSRC and co-sponsored by the UCLA Division of Social Sciences, the UCLA Institute for Research on Labor and Employment, the UCLA Latin American Institute, and the UCLA Center for Mexican Studies, and the UCLA César E. Chávez Department of Chicana and Chicano Studies.
