A Talk by Drs. Rosaura Sánchez & Beatrice Pita on The Californio Testimonios
In their talk at CSUN, Drs. Sánchez and Pita will examine the complicated and often conflicted identity formation of Californios. They will also discuss their recent study on Indigenous and Mexican dispossession. In Spatial and Discursive Violence in the U.S. Southwest (Duke University Press 2021), they critically examine the participation of Chicanxin the dispossession of Indigenous populations before being dispossessed themselves with the U.S. invasion of the Southwest. Their work takes on an important political task, both in terms of Chicanxrelationship to the past but also to their positioning in the present.
