A Study of the Nature of Chicano Studies Derived from Twelve Proposals for Chicano Studies Written Between 1968 and 1974: A Tentative Description.
Zuniga, Alfred I.; Rigby-Acosta, Barbara
By examining 12 proposals for Chicano Studies written between 1968 and 1974, this paper attempts to answer the following questions: (1) "What are the ends of Chicano Studies?", and (2) "What is meant by the term 'Chicano Studies'?" Material for reflection regarding what the proposals have collectively described as the essence of Chicano Studies is presented. The paper takes an in-depth view as to the extrinsic (Chicano community) and intrinsic (institutions of formal education) rationale of Chicano Studies. The paper also identifies the role of community, students, and staff; describes the nature of Chicano Studies; describes the conflict between Chicano Studies and the educational system; and proposes alternatives for Chicano Studies.
