About LLC

The Latino Literary Cultures Project / Proyecto culturas literarias latinas is an interdisciplinary initiative at UC Santa Cruz that studies and promotes creative writing by and about U.S. Latinas and Latinos, past and present. Since 2006, it has brought students and scholars together with writers, translators, reviewers, and librarians through a major biennial conference, as well as smaller events on topics like Latinos and new media. The Project is particularly interested in the inventive uses of multiple languages; in the global circulation and translation of Latino culture; and in the ways that new forms of literacy and attention in the digital age are changing the relationship of text to visual and sound media. The Latino Literary Cultures Project is the only established research group in the U.S. with such a focus.
