"Indigena as Scribe--The (W)rite to Remember" with Cherrie Moraga
Thursday, April 12 at the Merrill Cultural Center, 7PM

For over 25 years, Cherrie Moraga has been dedicated to work centered on building community amongst diverse peoples. Cherrie Moraga's plays and publications have received national recognition, including a TCG Theatre Artist Residency Grant in 1996, the NEA's Theatre Playwrights' Fellowship in 1993, and two Fund for New American Plays Awards. She is the author of the now classic Loving in the War Years: Lo Que Nunca Paso Por Sus Labios (1983/2003) and The Last Generation (1993), published by South End Press of Cambridge, MA. In 1997, she published a memoir on motherhood entitled Waiting in the Wings: Portraits of a Queer Motherhood (Firebrand Books) and has just completed a new memoir on her mother's passing from Alzheimer's in 2005 entitled Send Them Flying Home.

As a leading Chicana lesbian writer, she has helped set the stage for generations of creative writers, performers, scholars, and activists. To ensure connections with UCSC undergraduate and graduate students, Moraga will lead a writing workshop with graduate women of color and a dialogue with aspiring performance artists and playwrights.

Since Cherrie Moraga's work is read in classrooms from LALS to Feminist Studies to Theatre Arts, we expect that her visit will facilitate discussions amongst students, staff, faculty and the broader community interested in drama, queer studies, and connections amongst Chicana/o and Native peoples. The Chicano Latino Research Center in collaboration with the Chicano Latino Resource Center will post a reading list of Moraga's work and arrange spaces of discussion prior to her public address.
