Title

Southwestern University Quarterly Magazine, 1992

Description

This particular edition of Southwestern Quarterly magazine includes articles titled "Discoveries of America" and "Exhibit Focuses on Tejana Women." The “Discoveries of America” section provides a short introduction for each of the six presentations that were held at the 1992 Brown Symposium. The article “Exhibit Focuses on Tejana Women” shines a light on the “Rostros y Almas/Faces and Souls” photography exhibit of 31 contemporary Tejana women from central Texas. The photographs represent the various contributions made to society by women of Mexican ancestry. The article displays a few of the photographs from the exhibit that were taken by Mary Jessie Garza. All of the women selected for the exhibit were chosen by co-curators, Mary Visser and Lupita Barrera Bryant. Visser and Bryant collaborated in order to discover the participants in the photography exhibit that was commissioned by Southwestern University. As a university publication, Southwestern Quarterly provided an effective platform to display the growing significance of Latino/a identities on campus by showcasing the exhibit to students, faculty, and alumni.
