Karrmen Crey, assistant editor of Aztlán: A Journal of Chicano Studies, published an essay on the Mujeres Talk blog discussing the prolific references to Gloria Anzaldúa and her scholarship in submissions to Aztlán, and how examining these references over time reveals the changing contours of Chicana/o Studies.

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.

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 and viewable during regular library hours.


Since its founding, 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 and the fastest growing population 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 grant and fellowship program.
