Dr. Linda Greenberg (English, Cal State LA) examines how the fax machine, a newly popular technology in the 1980s, helped connect a tight knit circle of women who would become the rising stars of Chicana feminist literature, offering a quick means for sharing ideas, aesthetics, and emotional support. Focusing on the pivotal Chicana author, Helena María Viramontes, Dr. Greenberg examines the effect of these faxed exchanges on Viramontes’ own work, as well as on the establishment of a Chicana feminist aesthetic community.

Join Dr. Andrew Knighton and student researchers as they discuss their inquiry into the legacy of radical poet Thomas McGrath. Unceremoniously fired from LASC (now Cal State LA) in 1954 due to his left politics, McGrath was nevertheless a leader of the L.A. poetry scene throughout the 1950s, and the recipient of considerable critical acclaim in subsequent decades. Commemorating McGrath’s centenary year, the project seeks to draw attention to the poet’s contributions to American poetry and his controversial place in Cal State LA history.
