Chicana/o Studies in Tejas: Transforming our Communities
Northwest Vista College in San Antonio, TX
February 20-22, 2014
About the Field of Study
Chicana/o Studies is a field of study that provides students with a comprehensive education. However, some institutions continue to remain reluctant to embrace such programs thus adding to the negations and negotiations within this vital institutional space. The 2014 NACCS Tejas Foco Conference wishes to provide spaces where teachers, students, researchers, creative writers, artists, activist, and grassroots leaders can come together to produce and promote ideas and knowledge about how Chicana/o Studies can continue to build stronger foundations within the Culture of Higher Education.
