The Fall 2016 features essays on the poetics of vulnerability, "mulfarious time," writing as healing, and disease-based stigmatizations of Mexicans and Mexican Americans. The dossier section features the Aztlán commentaries by Chon A. Noriega, editor from 1996 through 2015.
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.


The CSRC’s crowdfunding campaign for the exhibition Home—So Different, So Appealing raised over $17,500!  Thank you for your support! The show opens June 11 at LACMA.
