Ten years ago, University of Texas at Austin organized and hosted a memorial for Gloria Anzaldúa in commemoration of her life and work. Activists, artists, and academics from across the country participated in the celebration of Anzaldúa’s legacy. Following her passing, LLILAS-Benson Latin American Studies and Collections became the repository of the “Gloria Evangelina Anzaldúa Papers, 1942-2004.” Scholars and activists travel from around the globe to work with Gloria Anzaldúa’s personal papers, which include “correspondence, written works, audio tape interviews, reviews, clippings, photographs, posters, artwork, and collected materials.”
The Center for Mexican American Studies at the University of Texas at Austin in cooperation with the Society for the Study of Gloria Anzaldúa are honored to serve as the host of El Mundo Zurdo 2015: Memoria y Conocimiento, Interdisciplinary Anzalduan Studies--Archive, Legacy, and Thought.
