Description
Founded in 1969, the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center Press was partly responsible for the founding and flowering of Chicano studies in the 1970s—-launching the careers of young academics who could not find mainstream publishers. This collection of materials from the press includes original submissions, production process materials, annual reports, and correspondence.
Background
Founded in 1969, the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center (CSRC) Press was an essential contributor to the founding and flowering of Chicano studies in the 1970s. It was one of first academic publishers to focus on matters of concern to Chicanx communities, and its journal, Aztlán: A Journal of Chicano Studies, provided opportunities for authors who could not find mainstream publishers. The premier journal in its field, Aztlán continues to provide a platform for launching the careers of young Chicanx and Latinx scholars.
