CLAC EVENTS!   A biweekly news blast that promotes community-wide events targeting students, faculty, staff, and alumni at Rutgers University. Unless noted, all events are free and open to the public.


EXHIBITION: Las Tres Hermanas Exhibition
Now through December 14, 9 AM-5 PM
CLAC @ 172 College Avenue

Tour our special exhibition, Las Tres Hermanas: Art, Education and Activism, honoring Puerto Rican activists sisters Elba Cabrera, Lillian López, and Dr. Evelina Antonetty. Las Tres Hermanas tells the story of three sisters, Evelina, Lillian and Elba, who profoundly changed the cultural and political landscape in New York-especially the Bronx-through their passion and advocacy, and had left a lasting legacy in their community. They understood that maintaining and expressing one's culture was an act of resistance and an affirmation of Puerto Rican identity.

Cosponsored by the Department of Latino and Caribbean Studies.



TALK: In Search of Belonging: Latinas, Media and Citizenship

Wednesday, November 7, 1:30-3 PM

Livingston Student Center, Room 201 A/B

Dr. Jillian Baez is assistant professor at College of Staten Island, where she specializes in Latino/a media, audience studies, transnational feminisms, and media literacy. Her recent book, In Search of Belonging: Latinas, Media, and Citizenship. In Search of Belonging, explores the ways Latina/o audiences in general, and women in particular, make sense of and engage both mainstream and Spanish-language media. Innovative and informed by a wealth of new evidence, In Search of Belonging answers important questions about the ways Latinas perform citizenship in today's America.

Sponsored by the Henry Rutgers Term Chair in Latino Studies and the Latino Studies Research Initiative.

ABOUT THE CLAC

The Center for Latino Arts and Culture's (CLAC) was established in 1992 to research, document, interpret and promote Latin@, Hispanic, Caribbean, and Latin American arts and culture. CLAC seeks to build a student-centered, learning community where students can better integrate experiential, academic and service learning about Latino arts and culture in order to become strong leaders and responsible global citizens. We advocate for the wellbeing of our students and work to create effective access to University services and resources. Through dynamic collaboration with other academic and student affairs units, the Center works to enhance Latino student recruitment, retention and successful graduation at Rutgers University.
