¡Unidos!: 20 años of Latinx Studies at Williams: exhibit in Special Collections

¡Unidos!: 20 años of Latinx Studies at Williams:

on view now in Schow Gallery, Special Collections (4th floor of Sawyer Library).

Special Collections, in collaboration with the Latino/a Studies Program and the Davis Center, invite you to visit and reflect on our exhibit: ¡Unidos!: 20 años of Latinx Studies at Williams.

Created by students, alumni, and faculty who are connected to the program, label authors were asked to reflect, not on objects of the program’s history, but on their experiences of events, people, and community.

These labels, and their writers, highlight the joy and resilience in the journey leading to Latina/o Studies becoming a program at Williams in 2004. From the Jenness Takeover in 1988, the hunger strikes for Latinx Studies of 1991 and 1993, photographs of events from the 2000s, to subjects of current course offerings, to administrative responses, clarity emerges regarding how Latina/o Studies was made possible and continues to be an invaluable aspect of both academic and personal life at Williams.
