In Chicano Studies, Culture Clash Is The Syllabus

UCLA’s Chicana and Chicano Studies 188 is “billed as the first university-level course focusing entirely on the works of Culture Clash, the provocative Chicano trio that for 22 years has carried the banner of barrio-based theater, a form traced to Luis Valdez’s Teatro Campesino. Many students have enrolled in the weekly seminar … to satisfy a history requirement, using the trio’s work as an academic window on Chicano life and times.”
