CELEBRATING FIFTY YEARS OF LITERARY LEGACY

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. The 2021 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 are held virtually via Crowdcast. Click here for our list of events. All events are free and open to the public.  

ART AND ACTIVISM

Our theme for the Fall 2020 academic period sought 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 opened 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 2020 and 2021 events were held virtually on Crowdcast. Click here for our schedule.
