Diversity and Ethnic Studies

As Las Vegas continues to grow, we encounter diverse faces, languages, and cultures in schools and communities. This lecture will discuss demographics, racial/ethnic history, and contemporary local
debates around these changes, including immigration. It will connect what is happening in Las Vegas to the nation and world around us as we take a closer look at these issues. Presented by: Anita Tijerina Revilla, an assistant professor in Women’s Studies at UNLV. She received her Ph.D. at the UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies within the division of Social Sciences and
Comparative Education. Her areas of expertise include Latina/o Critical Theory, Critical Race Theory, Education, and 301). Chicana/Latina Feminist and Queer Studies. Her independent research focuses on the intersections of race, class, gender, and sexuality in the experiences of Chicanas/Latinas and other women of color, especially as it relates to feminist and Queer activism, social movements, and social justice education. Some of her most recent publications include: "Muxerista Pedagogy: Raza Womyn Teaching Social Justice Through Activism," published in The High School Journal, 87 (4), 2004, (80-94) and "Inmensa Fe en le Victoria [Immense Faith in Victory]: Social Justice Through Education."
