Dogs of Doubtful Origin

Add to Calendar10:00 am – 4:00 pm

In a quirky spin on the traditional sabbatical exhibition, sculpture professor Lori Miles invites six of her former students, all recent MFA recipients, to create a massive, collaborative exhibition.  Though sparked by themes central to Miles’ own work, the exhibit will be conceived, designed, and executed by all six artists collectively.  Overtly exploring the vertical exchange of information from teacher to student, this project also delves deeply into horizontal knowledge; those cultural memes that spread laterally through transfer, imitation, and replication.  Dogs of Doubtful Origin refers both to an incorrect research loop referenced by cryptozoologists and to the ambiguous artistic ownership of the exhibit itself.

Curtis Acosta, "Pedagogies of Hope and Resiliency: Responding to the Criminalization of Chicano/Latino Youth"

Add to Calendar4:15 pm – 6:30 pm

Free and open to the public.

Recent policies have banned bilingual education and Mexican American Studies in Tucson public schools, and also have benned undocumented students in Georgia from attending public universities. Furthermore, hundreds and thousands of youth in the U.S. are criminalized due to inadequate and inhumane immigration policies that violate civil and human rights. Simultaneously, the prison industrial complex has exploded and the convergence of these two phenomena proves to be far from coincidental.

     However, pedagogies of hope and resiliency shine a beacon of optimism for the future in communities that have seen unparalleled regressive political attacks on Chicano/Latino youth. This talk focuses on the relationship between the political context for Chicano/Latino youth and the resiliency and creativity of those who strive for justice, equality and education for liberation in their community.


About Curtis Acosta (from

     Curtis Acosta is an unlikely leader in the Chicano Studies educational movement.  He's half Swedish, half Mexican.  He doesn't speak Spanish.  And at the El Dorado Hills, California high school where he went to school he admittedly ran away from his ethnicity.  But he shares a profound bond with the other 10 litigants in this historic case.


     “Our styles are different, our intellectual curiosities go in deep ways but we are a community among ourselves,” Acosta says.  “One thing we have is a deep, deep love of youth, for our country and wanting to make this world a better place.”


     Acosta teaches at Tucson High Magnet School – a school older than the state of Arizona itself.  The school is roughly 65 percent Chicano and 23 percent Anglo.  It has been a historic school for Tucson's African American population.  His course load includes three Latino literature classes and two freshman English classes.  He aspires to make his classes as culturally relevant as possible, finding material for discussion in everything from Shakespeare's The Tempest to contemporary writer Luis Alberto Urrea's The Devil's Highway and Junot Diaz' Drown.


     “I pick the literature to be provocative and it has to be beautiful,” he says.  But his picks have also made him a lightning rod of controversy.  “I have one of probably the most visited classrooms in America,” Acosta notes.  “I've had the superintendent, assistant superintendent, CNN, and the LA Times just in my room alone. Education Weekly just left. Senator (John) Huppenthal has been here.  So for someone to say there's no transparency or that we hide it every time somebody walks in is ludicrous.


     “All of us have glowing evaluations,” he says of his fellow Ethnic Studies educators.  “Our students are a glowing evaluation.  They're critical thinkers.  They're comfortable in their identity and their beliefs.  They're still forming their beliefs.  We just provide the soil for them to grow in.  We nurture them.  So for anybody to want to dismantle something beautiful that has academic success, a track record of student achievement, of hard working professionals that have created something that's an anomaly within not only the no child left behind era but in TUSD and the state of Arizona itself, then they have another agenda.”
