The JSLP website has undergone massive changes. We have been busy at the Project and our website reflects our activity. This past summer we held an event, Narrativas de Nuevo Mexico, and much of it is now on our site. Explore Narrativas to see our film detailing some of the achievements in the lives of Ted Martinez, Mari-Luci Jaramillo, Vicente Ximenes, Graciela Gil Olivarez, and Julian Samora. Check out interviews, timelines, and photos. We also filmed the panel discussion and that is available to view.
We are very pleased to announce that the Julian Samora papers are available online. Most of the scholarly papers from the Julian Samora Archive, housed at the Benson Latin American Collection at the University of Texas, Ausitn, are scanned and available to be searched. Go to Search the Archives or click here and investigate them.
We have revised Featured Articles and look for recent pieces concerning the state of Latino Affairs world-wide. We have also updated our store to offer mugs and T-shirts. Our book on Dr. Samora, Moving Beyond Borders: Julian Samora and the Establishment of Latino Studies is also for sale.
If you appreciate our ongoing work collecting the stories of our elders’ who worked for social justice please feel free to send a donation in any amount. Your donation helps fund students, oral history collections, and films.
Till next time,
Carmen Samora PhD
