Chicano Movement Sacramento
As part of a Chicano Movement course, students conducted video interviews with activists who participated in the civil rights struggle in the Sacramento region. By collecting the oral histories of Chicano and Chicana activists in the 1960s and ’70s, the course connects classroom learning with living history and, in the process, builds a collective archive of that fight for future generations.
Childhood Studies Bibliography [via Oxford Bibliographies Online]
“The scholarly study of children and young people is a relatively new multidisciplinary effort that spans multiple epistemologies and methodologies, making it challenging for students and scholars to stay informed. From psychology to labor rights, from ethics to education, Childhood Studies is one of the most active fields in academia today. It encompasses the meanings that adults place on children’s innocence or competence, and interrogates the notion of childhood as a social category. . . . Researchers and practitioners at all levels need tools that help them filter through the proliferation of information sources to material that is reliable and directly relevant to their inquiries. Oxford Bibliographies in Childhood Studies will offer a trustworthy pathway through the thicket of information overload.”
