"American Crossroads: Migration, Communities, and Race" Conference
Thu, April 16, 2009 • 9:00 AM - 5:30 PM • Texas Union (UNB) 2.102, Eastwoods Room
This conference convenes scholars of race, activism, and migration to explore comparative trajectories of racialization and community building among Asian, African, and Latino Americans. We encourage the sharing of questions and research problems across ethnic divides to advance our understanding of the coalitions, conflicts, and intersections that distinguish and yet entwine these groups. Our three panels focus on urban communities, activism, and racial discourses.
Sponsored by the Center for Asian American Studies, Institute for Historical Studies, Donald D. Harrington Faculty Fellows Program, Center for Mexican American Studies, and John L. Warfield Center for African and African American Studies.
