Latina History Project

Latina

The Latina History Project (LHP) at Southwestern University is “Co-directed by faculty members Dr. Brenda Sendejo (Anthropology) and Dr. Alison Kafer (Feminist Studies) the LHP is a faculty-student research project that aims to enhance undergraduate education and provide resources on Latina/o and Chicana/o history in the Central Texas region. While the project began with the goal of digitizing the ‘Rostros y Almas/Faces and Souls’ exhibit on local Tejanas, it has grown to encompass the broader mission of enhancing understandings of Latina/o and Chicana/o history. The LHP does so through the collection of oral histories from past and present members of Southwestern community as well as several activists, including key figures in the Chicana/o Movement in Texas.” Explore their Omeka collection and discover oral histories such as Dr. Yolanda Chávez Leyva’s narrative.
