The Chicano-Riqueño Studies Program is an interdisciplinary program offering students an opportunity to study the cultural roots, heritage, and contemporary social framework of the Chicano, Puerto Rican, and other Spanish-speaking peoples of the United States. The program encourages a United States Latino focus within the Latin American studies minor or certificate, and its faculty sponsors courses, symposia, guest lectures, poetry readings, and research on United States Hispanics in the fields of anthropology, bilingual education, folklore, history, language, and literature. The program publishes an occasional series of scholarly monographs on literature, language, and culture. It helps support Chiricú, a literary magazine, and helped found Third Woman, a journal of women writers; it also promotes musical performances, art exhibits, and readings of Chicano and Puerto Rican works.
