Tuesday, February 5, 2012-Houston- The Mexican-origin population in the U.S. has been called by terms such as Latin American, Mexican American, Hispanic, Latino, and Chicano. The most controversial is Chicano, Professor Jose Limon published a seminal essay in 1979 dealing with such issues as the lower-class origins of the word and its association with the student militancy in the Sixties and Seventies. In the CMAS presentation, he will revisit the term and reflect upon its origin, usage, ideology, and influence.
