In this special edition of the CSRC Newsletter, we celebrate the Getty-led Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative! The CSRC is one of the lead partners of PST: LA/LA, a far-reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles. Plus, CSRC online exhibits for Hispanic Heritage Month, new publications from CSRC Press, and more!

Laura Aguilar: Show and Tell surveys the career of Laura Aguilar, a Chicana photographer who is most widely known for black-and-white nude self-portraits that are frank and self-assertive, yet deeply sensitive and poetic. This catalog accompanies Laura Aguilar: Show and Tell, a retrospective at the Vincent Price Art Museum at East Los Angeles College opening September 16, 2017.
Throughout the run of the CSRC-organized exhibition Home—So Different, So Appealing at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the museum's blog will regularly feature posts related to the show.

Since its founding, the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center (CSRC) has played a pivotal role in the development of scholarly research on the Chicano-Latino population, which is now the largest minority group and the fastest growing population in the United States. Our research mission is supported by five distinct components: a library with special collections archive, an academic press, collaborative research projects, public programs and community-based partnerships, and a competitive grant and fellowship program.
