The UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center (CSRC) is pleased to announce a new “IUPLR Mellon Fellowship” at UCLA for doctoral students completing a Chicana/o or Latina/o studies-focused dissertation based on humanities disciplines and methods.
The CSRC mourns the passing of printmaker and artist Richard Duardo, a key figure in L.A.'s art scene starting in the 1970s. His work was featured in the CSRC's L.A. Xicano exhibitions of 2011-12, and he has an oral history published by the CSRC Press. Chon A. Noriega provides a tribute. (Image: Richard Duardo, Barbara Carrasco, Carlos Almaraz.
