Alex Saragoza Profile


quote buttonMost of us [in ethnic studies] could have ended up -- and I certainly had job offers -- in a regular history department but we felt we had a particular mission. . . . [We] are very concerned with the issue of democracy . . . there was a whole generation of us who made it our concern to try to even the plane as much as we could. Because I am associated with Chicano Studies, where many people on this campus assume we do second-rate scholarship and third-rate research and that most of us are probably fourth-rate teachers . . . it's a continuous process of proving myself, including to students.
