About

The Latino Literary Cultures Project/ Proyecto culturas literarias latinas brings together faculty and graduate students at UC Santa Cruz with local, regional, UC-wide and global communities. It is formally constituted as a research cluster and working group affiliated with the Chicano/Latino Research Center, which has promoted innovative transnational and interdisciplinary research linking the Americas since 1992. We have received generous support from the Institute for Humanities Research, the University of California Institute for Mexico and the United States, and the University of California Humanities Research Institute.
