This seminar provides a forum for works-in-progress that explore topics in Latino/a and Borderlands studies. We seek proposals from individuals or groups for seminar papers or complete panels that examine the interplay of Latino/a people, communities, and culture in the United States; transnational and comparative borderlands studies; migration studies; Latino/a gender and sexuality; changing urban landscapes as a result of Latino/a settlement; civil rights and social movements; Critical Indigenous Studies; and other related topics.
Seminar sessions are held on select Fridays. In 2022-2023, some meetings will take place online via zoom, while others may meet in-person at the Newberry Library, 60 W. Walton St., Chicago, IL.
The seminar’s co-sponsors are Indiana University’s Latino Studies Program, Northwestern University’s Program in Latina and Latino Studies, The Institute for Latino Studies at the University of Notre Dame, the Center for Latino Research at DePaul University, and the Katz Center for Mexican Studies at the University of Chicago, and the University of Illinois at Chicago Latin American and Latino Studies Program.
