Magnifying Generative Imaginaries and Transformative Relational
Ethnic Studies Research and Writing
March 1, 2018
This Public Scholarship Team event stressed the revealing and relevant qualities when pursuing Ethnic Studies research and writing in a relational and inclusively humane fashion.
We celebrated and promoted the transformative trajectory and contributions of Kalfou: A Journal of Comparative and Relational Ethnic Studies and Imagining America: Artists and Scholars in Public Life as invaluable examples and resources when learning from, developing, and disseminating our approaches to magnifying the humanizing qualities of relational Ethnic Studies research and writing.
George J. Sanchez, author of Boyle Heights: How a Los Angeles Neighborhood Became the Future of American Democracy (University of California Press, 2021) shared a fabulous presentation on his relational approach to historicizing and disseminating the multi-racial and multi-ethnic history of Boyle Heights., Los Angeles, California.
Public Scholarship Seminar Team members Maria Abigail Alvarez, Laurangel Bustos, Jocelyn A. Contreras, Petra de la Cruz, Daniel A. Garcia, Esmeralda Hic, Dulce Perez, and Alice G. Terriquez shared their public scholarship research presentations during this event.
This event was organized and hosted by Ana Elizabeth Rosas, and sponsored and funded by UCI Illuminations, UCI Humanities Commons, Office of the Dean of the School of Social Sciences, and the Departments of Chicano-Latino Studies and History.
