Ana Castillo @ SDSU | MAMA SCHOLARS EVENTS ! Co-sponsored by MALAS, The Master of Arts in Liberal Arts and Sciences Program @SDSU #sdsumalas
You are invited to the MamaScholars: Mothering in Academia Series. This series is organized with the goal of building community and opening healing spaces for MamaScholars. The series aims to create academically-informed consciousness-raising spaces for mothers and allies about the particular needs of mothering across culture, race, ethnicity, class, citizenship status, gender, sexuality, size, age, ability, and relationship status. In order to do this, we’ve invited scholars, community activists, and healers of color to promote educational tools for creating positive self-agency. At the heart of our vision is creating a mothering collective that advocates for mothers' needs in support of their academic goals.
Mothering in Academia Series is organized by the Nepantleras Feminist Collective and Dr. Irene Lara, and supported by the Student Success Fee (SSF), the Women’s Studies Department, Women’s Resource Center, SELACH, MALAS, Latin American Studies, Africana Studies, Chicana/o Studies, Safe Zones, and ONE SDSU Community.

SDSU Press Proud to Co-Sponsor the Wendelmoot Symposium Event of the Year! Blacktinx Queer Performance | E. Patrick Johnson and Ramon Rivera-Servera, Northwestern University
Blacktinx Queer Performance: Crossing Beyond the Crisis of Bordered Identities
In this presentation, E. Patrick Johnson and Ramon Rivera-Servera will discuss their ongoing research collaborations around issues of black and Latinx (“Blacktinx”) queer performance. They will pay particular attention to the history of earlier coalitions of black and latinx queers that lay the groundwork for queer artists to create work that moves beyond hard-and-fast boundaries of ethno-racial identities
#wendelmoot is a project of the SDSU Department of English & Comparative Literature--this event is co-sponsored by the LGBTQ Research Consortium-SDSU, the College of Arts and Letters at San Diego State University--The Official Page, M.A.L.A.S.
