    Gilda Ochoa, Pomona professor of Chicana/o-Latina/o studies at Pomona College and author of "Becoming Neighbors in a Mexican American Community," will talk about immigration and community organizing in the context of the L.A. County community of La Puente. This case-study approach would allow for an increased awareness of the history of inequality in this predominately Latina/o community, the struggles surrounding immigration and intra-ethnic relationships, and the current organizing for sanctuary in the city and the school district.

    Citizen science movements challenge the world to consider radical, new relationships among scientists and engineers and nonexperts. Rather than casting members of the public as passive recipients of scientific and technological information, speakers of the 2017 Nelson Series will offer models for engagement and collaboration intended to promote meaningful public participation in science.Admission to this public lecture series is complimentary. Unless otherwise specified, events are held in the auditorium of the R. Michael Shanahan Center for Teaching and Learning at Harvey Mudd College located at 320 E. Foothill Blvd., Claremont. A dessert reception follows each lecture.
