Research focused on Chicano and Latino contributions to U.S. history, thought and culture.
Twenty-first-century America has a new social and cultural reality, signaled by demographic shifts. The growing Chicano / Latino community now constitutes the largest population in California. The Chicano Studies Research Center (CSRC) takes a multidisciplinary approach to documenting, studying and understanding the contributions and challenges of this vital part of American society. The center has an impact across the college and professional schools, while it also reaches off-campus with innovative community-based partnerships.
With an active press, groundbreaking research, extensive archives and the only Chicano studies library in the country, the Chicano Studies Research Center is a vital resource for students, community members and scholars from around the world.
The CSRC Press produces award-winning books that explore the Chicana/o and Latina/o experience in the arts, community-based organization, education, mass media, music, and beyond. The center’s journal, Aztlán, is pre-eminent in the field. Policy briefs and research reports explore topics from K-12 and post-secondary education to hate speech, public health and discrimination in commercial media. DVDs provide access to important and rare Chicano films, from early features to documentaries to video art.
Your gift will allow the Chicano Studies Research Center to continue its important work into the future.
