About the RCA
Since 1992, the Research Center for the Americas (formerly the Chicano Latino Research Center from 1992-2018) has helped make UC Santa Cruz a vibrant hub for Latin American, Chicanx/Latinx, and migration studies. Primarily drawing from and bringing together the social sciences, humanities, and arts, our work explores the incredible diversity of the Americas, with a focus on research questions related to citizenship, class, economics, education, environment, everyday cultures, genders, human rights, identities, immigration, indigeneity, labor, language, nation, place, policy, politics, race, representation, sexualities, social movements, the state, and statelessness.
