Chicana/X Latina/X Working Group from 2:00 – 5:00pm @ the Library TLPDC Room 153 Texas Tech faculty, staff and graduate students are organizing a working group to focus on Chicana/x Latina/x Thought and Theory in the New Millennium to complement the wake of TTU’s newly attained status as Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI). Cultivating our newly attained status of a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI), we propose a working group to integrate “Chicana/x Latina/x feminist thought & theory in the new millennium” within our curriculum, practice, and institutional climate. Chicana feminism, also called Xicanisma is a social political movement in the United States that analyzes the historical, cultural, spiritual, educational and economic intersections of Mexican American women who identify as Chicana. Chicana feminism has become a transcultural influence throughout the world. Contact Esther Medina De Leo´n for more information.
