Important current CSRC research projects include California Freedom Summer, Critical Mission Studies at California's Crossroads and A Ver: Revisioning Art History. The CSRC is a regular partner with the UCLA Latino Policy and Politics Initiative, and in 2018 conducted studies pertaining to Latino representation at the Smithsonian Institution.
From 2014-18, the CSRC was one of the five lead partner institutions of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, a Getty-led arts initiative focused on Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles. From 2006-2015, the CSRC ran the Chicano Education Research Project featuring an annual Latina/o Education Summit. Teaching Latinx Art HIstory is an ongoing project to advance the pedagogy of Chicano art history.
The CSRC hosts numerous archival research projects related to the social sciences as well as music, cinema, and fine art. 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 publishes briefs and reports of current research supported by the CSRC.
