Chabot College will be hosting the Northern California FOCO meeting and Regional conference for theNational Association for Chicana and Chicano Studies (NACCS)

Saturday February 18, 2017

We will have a special “NACCS for Beginners” session to start off our conference at Chabot, and it will be followed by a full day of panel and round-table presentations by local graduate students from San Jose State, Sacramento State, and Stanford. As well as professors from surrounding universities and community colleges, including Hartnell College, Diablo Valley College, Sacramento State, San Jose State, and UC Santa Barbara. NACCS serves as a forum for promoting communication and exchanging of ideas among Chicana and Chicano scholars across all geographical and disciplinary boundaries. NACCS promotes and enhances the opportunities and participation of Chicanas and Chicanos at all levels and positions of institutions of higher learning. Moreover, NACCS promotes research that directly confronts structures of inequality based on class, race and gender privileges in U.S. society and since its inception has encouraged research, which is critical and reaffirms the political actualization of Chicanas and Chicanos.
 
This event is free and open to the public, I encourage the entire Chabot community to attend and suggest that you let your students know about this opportunity. If you have any questions please email jmercado@chabotcollege.edu
