Histories and Cultures of Latinas: Suffrage, Activism and Women's Rights

February 20-22, 2020  ·  University of Houston Downtown  ·  Houston, Texas

The XV Recovery conference will convene in Houston from February 20 to 22, 2020 at the University of Houston Downtown to continue the legacy of scholars meeting to discuss and present their research. The conference theme invites scholars—including archivists, librarians, linguists, historians, critics, theorists and community members–to share examples of the cultural legacy they are recovering, preserving and making available about the culture of the Hispanic world whose peoples resided here, immigrated to or were exiled in the United States over the past centuries.

This conference foregrounds the work of Latinas that focuses on women’s rights, suffrage and education as we usher in a new phase of feminist critical genealogies.
