UTPA’S MEXICAN AMERICAN STUDIES PROGRAM WILL BE HOSTING The National Association for Chicana and Chicano Studies (NACCS) TEJAS FOCO CONFERENCE AT UTPA FEBRUARY 21-23, 2013 Recent attacks on Chican@ and Ethnic Studies programs are reminders of the need for spaces to produce knowledge in, about, and for our communities.

Those with experience as students, teachers, activists, scholars, artists, and other community members are invited to submit the following types of proposals: panels, papers, performances, posters/exhibits, creative activities, testimonios, round tables, film screenings, workshops, and other innovative presentations.
