Talk on "What's wrong with Arizona" by Sandra Soto

Join us on Thursday April 21st, 2011 from 6:00pm-8:00pm in Walter Library Room 405. During this talk Sandra K. Soto will describe and analyze what her colleague K. Tsianina Lomawaima has aptly coined Arizona's "regressive suit of legislation". She also will talk about the usefulness of queer theory and queer politics, not only for reading the norms produced by --and productive of-- the legistation, but for questioning some of the "family values" based activist responses to the legislation.
See you there!

Chicano Studies Names New Faculty!

To the students, staff, instructors, faculty affiliates, and friends of Chicano Studies:

I am very pleased to announce that Jimmy Patino has accepted our offer to join us as an Assistant Professor of Chicano Studies in the coming year!

Professor Patino is currently teaching at St. Cloud State University. He recently completed his PhD in History at the University of California at San Diego, where he completed a dissertation entitled "A Time for Resistance;" Globalization, Undocumented Immigration and the Chicana/o Movement in the San Diego Borderlands."

His teaching and research interests illuminate how issues of migration, cross-group interaction and social movements underscore the global forces that transform American society. He will teach a variety of courses in History, Cultural Studies, Borderlands Studies, and Chicana/o-Latina/o Politics.

Please feel free to drop him a line extending him a warm welcome at jcpatino@stcloudstate.edu

Muchisimas gracias to Professors Park, Onishi, Squires, and O'Connell for serving on our search committee. Just as importantly I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to EVERYONE who took time to meet with candidates, attend their lectures, and to provide feedback which was crucial in making this search successful. We look forward to starting next year with a renewed sense of purpose and commitment to our educational and community engagement mission.
