Latinx Heritage Month 2017

Latinx Heritage Month 2017
an Exhibit by the Students of
Ethnic Studies 212
Survey of Chicano/a – Latino/a Studies
Professor Marta Maldonado

This winter 2017 course was a survey of key concepts and ideas in Latinx Studies, with a focus on the processes and events that have led to the historical incorporation of various Latinx groups into the United States, and the dynamics shaping Latinx contexts of reception historically.

The students used various collections from the Oregon Multicultural Archives to explore a variety of Latinx themes. In groups, they conducted research in the archives to analyze archival materials to answer questions such as: 1) How do these documents illustrate the theme? 2) How is this part of the larger historical Latinx narrative? In addition, how does it fit into contemporary issues? 3) What do you want your audience to remember about your selections?
