Background on Symposium:

The Latino Studies Program at Indiana University invites undergraduate students to participate in our first César E. Chávez Undergraduate Research Symposium to be held Thursday March 21 and Friday March 22, 2013. Students are invited to share their work through research papers, multi-media or poster presentations, in an engaging and welcoming environment.

We invite students to develop and present research they have done in a class that focuses on Latinas/Latinos in the U.S. and in transnational context. Students will have the opportunity to work in collaboration with a faculty member or graduate student to develop their projects. The Latino Studies Program will also provide workshops on presentation skills and poster-making prior to the symposium.

The aim of the symposium is to encourage undergraduate interdisciplinary research in Latino Studies and invite the general public to engage in conversations about Latina/o lived experiences.

Topics could include but are not limited to:

  • Education
  • Migration
  • Diasporas
  • Gender and Sexuality
  • Culture Production
  • Literature
  • Health
  • Media
  • Public Policy
  • Activism
  • Social Justice
  • Identity Politics
  • Building community
  • Citizenship
  • Race and Class
