Hispanic Heritage Month Presentation -Dr. Rudy Guevara: Forging Multi-ethnic Mexipino Identities and Communities in San Diego, CA
September 22, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
This presentation explores the historical and contemporary formations of San Diego’s Mexipino communities through a series of narratives and photographs. Dr. Guevarra shows how shared experiences of Mexicans and Filipinos, such as Spanish colonialism, racial segregation and community formation, labor and civil rights struggles, and food contributed to the development of this distinct multi-ethnic identity for Mexipinos. Sponsored by the Office of the Provost, College of Liberal Arts, Department of Modern Languages, Anthropology and Geography, and the Student Organization of Latinos.
