Greetings to our readers! We thought we would take a break from our scholarly activities to apologize for not posting any recent entries (since early-August) as well as to give you an update on our plans for future posts. As some of you may or may not be aware, this part of the year is (primarily) the season for submitting papers to regional conferences. Regional conferences can be quite helpful if not entirely vital to finishing a essays before submitting them to academic journals for review and hopefully publishing. And we here at (Viva) La Resistencia are in the midst of completing research if not finishing drafts for submissions. That being said, we are planning on publishing some more entries on the blog beginning 10/27. In fact, it is at this (near) future junction in which our work as community organizers and activists for the Chicano community begins. You see, Chicano/as, it is our scholarship from which we derive our ideas for bettering or protecting the community. It is this work from which we will pursue intellectual discourse or debate with others outside and even within the community.
In fact, our first target comes from within-Gloria Lucas and Nalgona Pride.
See you then,
Viva La Resistencia
