In 2021, the Department of Chicano & Latino Studies (CLS) celebrates its 50th anniversary. To commemorate this historic moment, we will produce public programs across the calendar year, so watch our social media channels and website for specific information.
¡Presente!: 50 Years of Chicano & Latino Studies
Our first event is the exhibition ¡Presente!: 50 Years of Chicano & Latino Studies, February 8 through May 16, 2021. In collaboration with Comunidades Latinas Unidas En Servicio (CLUES) in St. Paul and the UMN Heritage Studies & Public History program, the exhibition will document through art and archival materials the department’s five decades of scholarship and community engagement.
