This two-day conference will explore the history of California’s missions with the goal of promoting new research that incorporates the voices of Native, Mexican, and Mexican American people into the history of California and the United States.

Featured as keynote speakers will be Yve Chavez, UCSC, and Jorge Cañizares-Esguerra, UT Austin. Chavez (Tongva/Gabrielino, Akimel O’odham, and Tohono O’odham) specializes in Indigenous and Colonial Latin American visual culture. Cañizares-Esguerra studies the formative role of Latin America in the colonial history of the United States and the history of "Western" modernity.

This event is made possible by The Terra Foundation for American Art. Presented by the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center, this conference is co-sponsored by Critical Mission Studies, UC-Mexico Initiative, and the UCLA Department of Art History.

The conference program is available on Eventbrite. This event is free; RSVP requested through Eventbrite.
