CHST@LSA

From April 27-May 5, 1994, nine Chicana/o, Latina/ students, affiliated with El Congreso, went on a ten-day hunger strike, generating substantive changes on campus.  This photo includes two of the nine hunger strikers, Naomi Garcia and Edwin Lopez, speaking at a rally outside Campbell Hall (Naomi Garcia collection).

Welcome to Chican@ Studies!

The Chicana/o Studies Department engages students in the interdisciplinary study of Chicana and Chicano history, culture, and politics. Our students explore Chicana/o experiences in their most broad, comprehensive sense, informed by several philosophical and theoretical schools, historical and political scholarship, literary and religious traditions, artistic movements, mass media, and video and film. In partnership with affiliated faculty across campus and feminist and Black Studies Ph.D. emphasis programs, the B.A./Honors/M.A./Ph.D. programs in Chicana and Chicano Studies challenge students to link theory with practice, scholarship with teaching, and the academy with the community.
