Archives in Plain Sight: Researching Latina/o/x History
Dr. Rosina Lozano, Associate Professor of History at Princeton University, work shows us that Latina/o/x history exists all over the United States if someone looks for it. Drawing on examples from her research, including California documents on Spanish language laws, Bureau of Indian Affairs documents about Mexican Americans in relation to Native Americans, and Congressional records of voting rights that recognized Latinos as a distinct group, Dr. Rosina will reveal archival records in plain sight. She will be in dialogue with Dr. Kirsten Silva Gruesz, professor of Literature at UC Santa Cruz and RCA Steering Committee member. This event is free and open to the public and webinar registration is now available. Closed captioning and an ASL interpreter will be provided.
Thursday, January 20 at 12:00pm to 1:30pm
