EPCC Chicana/o Studies Humanities Institute

A series of workshops on Chicano/Mexican-American studies for faculty at El Paso Community College.

EPCC will develop a Humanities Institute whose purpose will be to build a comprehensive interdisciplinary framework to guide its newly approved Chicana/o Mexican American Studies Program. This project will create an opportunity for humanities faculty members to study together while improving their capacity to teach the humanities in this newly created academic program of study. Renowned humanities scholars from Chicano/Mexican-American Studies programs throughout the U.S. with extensive expertise will lead these workshops. The topics for the lectures/forums will focus on issues directly affecting the U.S.-Mexico border and will lay the foundation for scholarly enhancement and faculty professional development necessary to formally develop a sound program in Chicana/o Studies in El Paso, Texas.
