Picturing Mexican America

Picturing Mexican America is a cluster of digital humanities projects designed and run by Professor Marissa López of UCLA.  We are committed to illuminating the long, Mexican history of Los Angeles that’s been systematically erased through centuries of white, cultural supremacy.  At PMA’s core is a mobile app, built in collaboration with the Los Angeles Public Library, that will display images of 19th century, Mexican Los Angeles to users based on their location. The app is currently in development, but you can get a feel for our content by following us Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.  PMA is a research and teaching hub open to partnerships with local organizations; see our “Collaborations” page to learn more and use our “Contact” form to be in touch.
