Congratulations to Prof. Miroslava Chavez-Garcia for receiving a UCHRI grant to support the work of the California Eugenics Legacies Project!

Dr. Miroslava Chavez-Garcia (History) has received a University of California Humanities Research Institute Grant to support the California Eugenics Legacies Project. This project takes a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach to understand the legacy of Eugenics on Latinx people in California. The object of the project is to organize an online symposium in May 2021 specifically examining the role California institutions of higher education played in Eugenics movements, and how to navigate these legacies.
