LLSP Major Funding Opportunity
The Latina and Latino Studies Program calls for applications from Latinx Studies Majors for funding (up to $500) to cover expenses related to research projects, such as a senior thesis or independent research about US Latinx communities.
Why Study Latinx Studies?
Our curriculum engages in the productive tension between the common interests and differences affecting U.S Latina and Latinos. Students may expect to explore such commonalities/ differences in areas such as social movements, transnationalism, electoral politics, expressive cultures, race and comparative processes of racialization, immigration, queer theory, and gender and sexuality. Our classes are diverse in content, teaching methods, and student body.
