This symposium, occurring April 28-29 at the Regis Center for Art, explores the ways in which culture and art can be used to reconstruct the place of queer communities of color in today's society. The event features round table discussions with Los Angeles artists and local Minneapolis community organizers, as well as a silent auction and a workshop for children.
Beginning in high school, American studies professor Bianet Castellanos had an interest in the history and the culture of the indigenous people of Mexico. That particular history wasn’t easy to explore.
On February 2, Dr. Michelle Téllez, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mexican American Studies at the University of Arizona, gave a talk at the University of Minnesota. She spoke to current concerns regarding the proposal to build a border wall and its implications for US-Mexico relations. This event was co-sponsored by American Studies, RIGS, and GWSS.
