New on CSRC Post: "Josefa Serna’s Spiritual Collection"
In the latest contribution to the CSRC Post, Nicole Ucedo, CSRC research and archive assistant, writes about her discoveries while processing the Josefa L. Serna Papers. The collection is part of the CSRC's NEH-funded project "Religion, Spirituality, and Faith in Mexican American Social History, 1940s–Present." The collection reflects Serna’s connection to her religion and includes church documents, photographs, and devotional objects. Writes Ucedo, "The objects in the Serna collection provide not only a deeply personal portrayal of one woman’s life but also insights into the lives of many Chicanxs living in Eastside neighborhoods in the 1930s through the turn of the century."
