Colegio Chicano del Pueblo is Calling Teachers/Instructors to Propose Courses!
We are looking for teachers/instructors who are able to historicize, contextualize, politicize, and indigenize the Xicano/a in their course material, by asking the following questions:
Who are we?
What is our material condition?
What can we do about it?
The goal of our curriculum is to serve any learner who has an interest in the Xicana/o community. However, these courses are especially designed to help Xicano/a/x communities organize around issues affecting the Xicano/a community, to help the general public understand the historical past of the Xicano/a community AND to better understand the present condition of the Xicana/o experience.
Do you have a course for us?
Literature & art
Contribute to Somos en escrito--The Latino Literary Foundation Online Magazine and Press:
Founded in 2009, Somos en escrito affords new and established indigenous-hispanic writers in the U.S. a venue where they may publish their writings without facing discrimination. It seeks to ensure that indigenous-hispanic literature is fully recognized as an integral part of American literature, in its commitment to deepen understanding and appreciation of the valuable literary contributions made by our Mexican American community.
This is a small but growing enterprise that is solely funded through community donations and supportive private institutions. Your generosity would help with staff and book production, including editing, cover art, marketing, advertising, etc.
