Programs and Projects



This film, a collaboration between the Foreign Languages & Literatures section and the Center for Bilingual/Bicultural Studies, portrays the experiences of Latina students as they encounter life at MIT and as they balance the sometimes conflicting, sometimes overlapping demands of personal, social and cultural spheres.

The project began as a collection of interviews (Latina Interview Project) , intended to give voice to a group of women whose efforts and struggles are often not recognized and who as a group are underrepresented in higher education. The stories in "Nuestras Voces" are personal, but certain themes unite the diverse group, including the significance of family traditions and relations, personal and community expectations, and the quest for a sense of identity.
