Oct. 11: History of the Hispanic, Latino experience at Indiana State, 1870 – present

2-4pm Wed. October 11 – Library Events Area

The history of students and faculty at ISU of Hispanic/Latino descent will be explored through original documents, archival photos, and testimonies. This hidden history will begin to be revealed. As we celebrate the Sesquicentennial of Indiana State University, presenters from ISU’s past and present will discuss the history of Hispanics/Latinos at the College and/or their individual histories/experiences at State.

Speakers include Crystal Mikell Reynolds (Chief Researcher, History); Dr. Timothy Hawkins (Professor, History); Dr. Carmen Montañez (Emeriti Faculty, Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics); Karina Arrambide (Graduate Student and Admissions Counselor), and Theresa Ortega (HOLA and HLA) who will speak about her father’s experience as one of the first Hispanic/Latino students on State’s campus in the late 50s-early 60s.

Refreshments will be served. Sponsored by the Sesquicentennial Committee and the College of Arts and Sciences.
