At the University of Chicago Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, we want students to have access to academic and cultural resources, but to also have opportunities independent of the classroom and student life. Thus, the following is a list of opportunities where students can go to search for funding, enrich their summers or find work after graduation.

The year 1971 can be considered a turning point in Chicana activism as a group of Chicana leaders from across the United States came together to voice their concerns as women. These concerns stemmed from discrimination in the home, work place, school, and within the Chicano Movement itself. Other issues addressed at the conference included concerns over healthcare and the relationship to other feminist movements and sexuality.

MAY  2011

Association for Asian American Studies Conference  (AAAS)
Consuming Asian Americans
May 18-21, 2011 | New Orleans, Louisiana

The theme for the 2011 AAAS conference "Consuming Asian America" is inspired, in part, by the site of the conference itself-New Orleans, the city that measures the success of its Mardi Gras celebration by weighing the garbage collected the morning after and whose shopping and nightclub district for locals is called "Fat City." The title "Consuming Asian America" has a double sense, referring both to the consumption performed by Asian Americans and the consumption of objects, people, and practices that are marked as Asian American. We are interested in the material practices, actions, and cultures of different versions of the consumer, such as eating, buying, viewing, as well as the larger metaphor of consumption.
