2019 Ethnic Studies Research Paper Award Winners

The CSUMB Library is pleased to announce the winner of our Ethnic Studies Research Paper Award. Gina Ion, an HCOM major graduating in Spring 2019, has won the award for her paper "Protests and Persuasion." In Gina's words, her paper "examines the historical and contemporary effectiveness of Native American rhetorical responses to the exploitation of natural resources."

An honorable mention goes to Odalis Garza for her paper "“Mexican Diaspora: In Constant Motion,” which describes how her family’s history is intertwined with the history of the Bracero program. Odalis is also an HCOM major graduating in Spring 2019.

As soon as the final versions are ready, these papers will be published to the Digital Commons.
