Nuestra América in the U.S.?

In February 2008, we organized a national, interdisciplinary U.S. Latino/a Studies conference at KU: “Nuestra América in the U.S.?”. This conference, one of the earliest to focus exclusively on Latinx Studies at a national level, featured prominent, internationally known scholars and writers such as Juan Flores, Suzanne Oboler, Emma Pérez, Roberto Suro, and Helena María Viramontes, and brought over 200 people from across the nation to KU.
