The CSRC is happy to announce the launch of our blog, the CSRC Post! The blog will highlight recent CSRC activities including research projects, archival collections, publications, and more. A new blog entry will be featured each month, with original content written by CSRC researchers, and community members.
Rotating exhibitions drawn from CSRC collections are on display inside the library and in the vitrine at the entrance. Exhibitions are free to the public. Image: “Corky” © 2006 Raul Caracoza. From the Self Help Graphics and Art Research Collection.
Since its founding in 1969, 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 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 grants and fellowships program. The CSRC has received recognition from its peers and the community, including:
  • Award for Excellence in Diversity, College Art Association (2019)
  • Editor/Publisher Award, Before Columbus Foundation (2019)
  • Diversity Award, Society of American Archivists (2012)
