The purpose of this Conference is to explore the historical and cultural processes that affect Latinas/os in the United States. We aim to contribute to the understanding of Latino/a communities in the U.S. by promoting interdisciplinary analyses of shared social, political, cultural, histories, and educational realities of Latinas/os. "Aqui Luchamos, Aqui Estamos: Reaffirming our Commitment to Activism and Resistance through Scholarship" will foster an ongoing dialogue across disciplines that will consider the commonalities, differences, and diverse experiences of Latino/a populations in this country.
