IHRC contributes to DPLA/Europeana exhibition

IHRC has recently worked with the Digital Public Library of America and the Europeana Digital Library to contribute images of items from the collections of the IHRC Archives to a new on-line exhibition "Leaving Europe: A new life in America."

AMST 8920, "Topics: Transnationalism and U.S. - Mexico Borderlands" will be taught spring 2013 by Yolanda Padilla. This course will track Chicana/o border studies as it evolved in the 1980's and 90's, examine ways in which border studies influenced and shaped the transnational imperatives that are now fundamental to work in American studies, and observe two case studies that indicate the importance of the borderlands for generating transnational approaches in Chicano/a and American Studies.
