CMAS Public Symposium

The Center for Mexican American Studies (CMAS) at The University of Texas at Austin is proud to sponsor a public symposia series to be held in the fall and spring semesters of the academic year. This gathering of leading scholars from diverse disciplines is designed to facilitate and further conversations central to the changing field of Mexican American studies. The title of the first symposium was "Sexing the Borderlands: From the Midwest Corridor and Beyond" and took place October 12-13, 2012. The title of the second symposium was "The Mexican American Archival Enterprise at the Benson Latin American Collection: An Historical Appraisal" and took place April 18-19, 2013. The third symposium was held in the fall semester 2013 (November 7-8) and was titled, "Fashionistas Fabulos@s." In the spring 2014, CMAS hosted a larger, full academic conference that was titled, "Illustrating Revolution and Anarchy: Mexican Legacies of Global Change", which took place February 5-7, 2014. The fourth symposium is being planned for spring semester 2015.
