“Doing Work that Matters”: Bridging Letras y Cambio Social
November 6th and 7th, 2010
San Antonio, Tejas
The MALCS Gathering launches an assessment of our organization as a national body to bridge all aspects of our organization and especially as we work to perpetually nurture and recognize the interconnection of academic labor and social activism. The MALCS Gathering entails a collective conduit through which we can explore new and existing strategies of bridging letras y cambio social.
In order to hold the gathering, the Executive Committee worked with The Society for the Study of Gloria Anzaldúa (SSGA) that graciously provided their final plenary session to MALCS in order to begin our discussion. This plenary opens up the MALCS Special Gathering to begin a series of discussions about MALCS and what we want it to become (“Doing Work that Matters”: Bridging Letras y Cambio Social, A National MALCS Roundtable, Saturday, Nov. 6).
Then on Sunday, Nov. 7 at Trinity University we will have discussion of what chapters/regions are doing as well as continue discussion on ideas, concerns, and needs in order to develop an assessment of where and how to continue.
On Monday, Nov. 8 at UTSA we will have a two-hour meeting to develop operational plans.
Your contribution as a participant will be invaluable to our project as your work has been critical to the developing MALCS’ as a national organization that dreams and acts to the fluctuating political landscape.
