Author(s):Sobenes, Elizabeth
Subject(s):Race
Housing
Freshmen
2009 Spring
LLS296
Issue Date:2009
Series/Report:LLS296 Topics in Latina/o Studies: Latina/o Cultural Space, Place and Practice - Historical and Contemporary Manifestations, Profs. Veronica Kann and Alicia Rodriguez : This course was designed to explore how Latina/o spaces, places, and practices on the Illinois campus are constructed and contested throughout. Beginning with the student activism that led to the founding of La Casa Cultural Latina in 1974 to the present conversations around “diversity” and “multiculturalism,” students looked at people and processes that have contributed to the Latina/o-ization of parts of campus. This course was held in conjunction with the Ethnography of the University Initiative (EUI) Project; each student were expected to conduct an oral history and/or ethnographic project which examine an aspect of when, where and how Latina/o ethnicities construct and are constructed within institutional culture.
