Tomas Rivera Conference Banner

2020-21 Conference



In 1971, Quinto Sol Press published Tomás Rivera’s seminal novel ...y no se lo tragó la tierra/ ...and the Earth Did Not Devour Him. 2021 marks the 50th anniversary of this important milestone in the formation of Chicano literature in the United States. This year's conference will feature a gathering of writers representing the evolving canons of Chicana/o/x, Latina/o/x literature over the past few decades. Conference events for the Winter and Spring quarters will be held virtually via Crowdcast. Click here for our Winter line-up and to register. All events are free and open to the public.  



Our theme for the Fall 2020 conference seeks to explore, challenge, and interrogate the myriad ways in which activism—in all its forms—influences the production and consumption of art from various mediums (writing, visual art, film, music, performance). We hope to open up dialogues and lines of communication between a cross-section of artists of various disciplines in order to gain a deeper understanding of the ways in which art and activism continually intersect and overlap, challenge and inspire. 

Our events will be held virtually on Crowdcast. Please click here for our schedule and to register.  Everything is free and open to all.
