Writer to Share Experiences as Latinx Studies Teacher

The third Arts and Lectures event of the semester features award-winning writer Irene Sanchez, who will share her experiences as a high school Latinx studies teacher through poetry and testimony.

Sanchez’s presentation, “Tell Them Where You're From: Teaching Our Lives/Stories,” is at 6 p.m. on Oct. 19 on Zoom. The event is free for Cal State San Marcos students; community members, faculty and staff can make a donation if they wish.

The event will expand on Sanchez’s theory that teaching history to students is not enough to educate them on social justice. Sanchez cares deeply for the success of future generations and believes connecting the past to students’ present lives can help bring a better tomorrow. The event will explore the significance of educating diverse communities and empowering future educators. 

CSUSM’s Arts and Lectures series offers a diverse lineup of artistic, cultural and scholarly events every semester based on input and proposals from students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, all events in the fall series are occurring virtually. Attendees can reserve tickets online via the Arts & Lectures website.
