Important ongoing CSRC research projects include A Ver: Revisioning Art History, which is documenting and preserving the work of individual Latina/o artists, the Strachwitz Frontera Collection of Mexican and Mexican American Recordings Digitization Project, and Latinos and Economic Security (LES). Additional research projects include health care entitlements for Spanish-speaking Latinos and L.A. Xicano, a groundbreaking curatorial effort that in 2011-12 resulted in four major museum exhibitions featuring over eighty Chicana and Chicano artists.
Each year the CSRC presents a Latina/o Education Summit that brings together scholars, educators, community representatives, policy makers, administrators, and students to explore viable policy recommendations and initiatives that can improve educational opportunities for Latina/o students and all students of color in the U.S.
The CSRC hosts numerous archival research projects related to music, cinema, fine art, and the social sciences. We are constantly working to preserve the rich and diverse history of the Chicana/o and Latina/o communities for future research, classroom instruction, and the public at large.
The CSRC Press regularly publishes briefs and reports of current research supported by the CSRC.
