“Decolonizing the University: SHL and UO Library Faculty Bring Oregon Latinx History into the Classroom Through Exploration of the PCUN Archives”
Our presentation models one component of the RL SHL Critical Language Awareness curriculum. Classes held in the the Special Collections section of the Knight Library employ the Pineros y Campesinos Unidos (PCUN) Archive to decolonize academic language and space and serve as academic mentorship imbedded into the course curriculum. The content prioritizes Latinx communities in Oregon and teaches about a successful local resistance movement still active today.
