Mascaras Y Trenzas: Reflexiones. Un Proyecto De Identidad Y Analysis A Traves De Veinte Anos (Masks And Braids: Reflections, A Project On Identity And Analysis Over Twenty Years), Margaret E. Montoya

Faculty Scholarship

This article uses Critical Race Theory and LatCrit methodologies, vocabulary, categories, and pedagogical approaches. In this Section, titled 'On Mascaras,' I am grappling with race (and gender secondarily) in public space -- un/masking my professional persona. In using the word 'wrestle' in the subheading I am referring to this struggle over a re-allocation of the social power that inheres in racial hierarchies, namely, the back-and-forth exchanges involved in changing the racial ambiance by exposing and transforming the presumptions, especially regarding notions of inferiority, that cabin our thinking and restrain our relationships. My original paper was something of an outburst, challenging ...

Threats Demand Our Action, Margaret E. Montoya

Faculty Scholarship

Those of us who identify as progressive see this as a time when speaking up and engaging on public policy is our duty. I am writing to express my deep concern and dismay about the state of the federal government under Donald Trump. Like others, I have marched, donated, and joined Wednesday’s International Women’s Day protests against the administration of Donald Trump.


A Critical Look At The ‘Critical Mass' Argument, Dawinder S. Sidhu Feb 2013

A Critical Look At The ‘Critical Mass' Argument, Dawinder S. Sidhu

Faculty Scholarship

The Supreme Court's pending ruling in Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin is expected to largely decide how or even whether affirmative action can be used in college admissions. The university's argument for why minority enrollments need to reach a certain threshold, however, is problematic because it is inconsistent with previous court rulings involving race.

San Felipe Pueblo Tribal Court Handbook (2013), Tribal Law Journal Staff

Tribal Law Journal

This handbook helps take some of the mystery out of practicing in tribal courts. Without the necessary information to learn new rules and protocols many attorneys are understandably reluctant to practice in a new jurisdiction. As a result, tribal courts are underused or misused. This handbook is intended to help attorneys and advocates become more aware of the various individual tribal court systems and to learn their rules and protocol.

Civic Education As An Instrument Of Social Mobility, Dawinder S. Sidhu Jan 2013

Civic Education As An Instrument Of Social Mobility, Dawinder S. Sidhu

Faculty Scholarship

Economic inequality—the relative distance between the wealthy and the poor—is growing in the United States. Relatedly, social mobili-ty—the opportunity to rise economically—has stalled for many in the nation. This is most true for the urban poor, who experience extreme poverty and are trapped in American inner cities. Meaningful economic opportunity and robust public educational support are among the tradi-tionally discussed means by which the urban poor may attain enhanced economic and physical mobility. The question becomes whether civic education—an understanding of the structure and contents of the U.S. Constitution and of the American government ...


Las Voces De America: Reflecting On Mari Matsuda's Voice, Stories, And Analysis, Margaret E. Montoya Jan 2013

Las Voces De America: Reflecting On Mari Matsuda's Voice, Stories, And Analysis, Margaret E. Montoya

Faculty Scholarship

Professor Matsuda's exhortation to listen to people of color was certainly heard and seized by people of color. It spoke to me personally and inspired me as I was writing my first article, Mascaras, Trenzas y Grerias. Once the multiracial group of scholars that took the name "LatCrit" organized ourselves, we deliberately and intentionally centered our annual conferences around listening to the voices at the bottom, including the local activists in the cities in which we met. We listened to such voices as both method and substance.
