AMST and USLT at Maryland Day 2012!

The American Studies Department and the U.S. Latina/o Studies Program is excited to for the chance to give back to our local community at Maryland Day, the University of Maryland’s annual celebration and showcase.

This year, we are excited to present Dr. Jo Paoletti’s baby guessing game, a trivia contest modeled after the 1904 World’s Fair on the heels of her newly published book Pink and Blue: Telling the Boys from the Girls in America.  There will be prizes for contestants with all correct responses and a free copy of her new book will be given away to one lucky winner.

Also, the U.S. Latina/o Studies Program is partnering with the Spanish Department and the Latin American Studies Department to present the contributions of the Latino community in Maryland.  The exhibit will feature dance performances and a chance to be part of the 2012 Virtual DC Latino Tour with Dr. Ana Patricia Rodriguez.

The AMST table will be located in the ARHU tent near Woods Hall and the USLT table will also be located on the mall.  We hope you will join in the fun at Maryland Day 2012!
