High school students will be gathering at Lehman College from around New York City to discuss their research on Latina, Latino, and Latin American Studies on Friday, June 21st, 2013.

The CUNY Institute of Mexican Studies is hosting the Inaugural High School Student Symposium on Latina, Latino, and Latin American Studies, or ISLAS. ISLAS is an opportunity for students to meet with their peers from throughout the city and share their work in a public forum moderated by college students, community leaders, and professors. The purpose of the symposium is to recognize the brilliance of New York City youth, hear their voices, and engage in discussion on themes relating to Latin American Studies and the Latina/o experience in the U.S. This symposium moves forward in the spirit of those CUNY students who led the fight to establish the Department of Black and Puerto Rican Studies at Hunter College, as it was first called in 1969.

    Hello,

    I’m a college graduate who studied Latin American History while in college, and would love the opportunity to attend the symposium. How can I register for the event given that I have no ties to the CUNY community?

    Thanks,
