This event represents a digital collaboration by the students of HIST/ERM 129: Topics in California History. The installation features media objects created to examine questions related to Latino/a mobility in 20th Century California History. The East Los Angeles Blowouts, circulation of images pertaining to Filipino and Mexican American collaboration within the United Farm Workers movement, migrant theater, mural iconography, photography of Latinas in urban space, portrayals of Latino street vendors in Los Angeles, and transnational movements within the sister cities of San Diego and Tijuana each point towards the varied roles of mobility in Latino/a California.
This open-air installation is based on a web exhibit titled “Latina and Latino Mobility in 20th Century California.” Audience feedback will be incorporated into students’ analysis and will help shape the final website. Using Latino/a histories of migration as its foundation, the exhibit explores the ways emergent technologies change how research is done and who it is done for.
Join us, on Friday December 5th at the Becton Center for the public release. Dress warmly. Light refreshments will be served.
