CSUP student Stephanie Carabajal presents at SISSI conference

Four CSU-Pueblo students, all minoring in Chicano Studies, presented yesterday at the Society for the Interdisciplinary Study of Social Imagery (SISSI) in Colorado Springs.  The students, Maria Zavala, Herio Rosales, Stephanie Carabajal and Mario Ruiz, conducted interviews in the Archives with Chicano vets and did research in the Chicano Movement Archives.  Their topics included Project Adelante, social and psychological aspects of Vietnam, Chicano Studies teaching in Pueblo schools and Latino decisions to join the military.  We are VERY proud of them!  It’s a big deal for an undergraduate to present at a scholarly conference.  This is the third  year that CSUP students have used archival materials as the basis for a SISSI presentation.  The presentations were part of the classwork for Dr. Fawn Amber Montoya’s capstone history class.
