Breaking Free, Breaking Down: The New Chicana/o History of the 21st Century

Glasscock Center Co-Sponsored Conference

Event Type
Conference/Symposium
Date
Friday, September 27, 2013
Time
8:00 am – 5:00 pm
Description

To call the current state of Chicana/o history strange or curious is an understatement. Today, controversy about Chicana/o history and especially Chicana/o Studies is heightened and seemingly a new front in the age-old “culture wars” that have defined this nation’s political culture for several decades. But this is counter-balanced by the new approaches, fresh insights, and rich diversity of interpretive perspectives allowing Chicana/o historians today to break free from older perspectives. Breaking down traditional categories—race, discrimination, gender, class, education, identity, and community formation—and embracing transnationalism, multiple and overlapping identities, and a heightened sense of comparative perspectives typify the approaches of the participants of “Breaking Free, Breaking Down: The New Chicana/o History in the Twenty-First Century.” These outstanding scholars are eager to take on the rapidly expanding diversity of historical imagination in Chicana/o history.

Conference co-sponsored by the Melbern G. Glasscock Center for Humanities Research, the Department of History, the Department of Multicultural Services, and the Office of the Vice President and Associate Provost for Diversity at Texas A&M University.
