Mestizo center publishes first online journal

By Breck Smith, College of Education intern

Brian-McNeilPULLMAN, Wash. – The first online journal addressing topics for the Pacific Northwest’s Mestizo and indigenous communities has been published by the Washington State University College of Education’s Center for Mestizo and Indigenous Research and Engagement.

Found at http://www.education.wsu.edu/journal, it is intended to translate academic and research writings into brief, easy-to-understand synopses for non-academic audiences.

The first issue “includes important information on topics ranging from the psychological treatment of Native American military veterans, to the negative effects of color-blind ideology on Latino/Mestizo populations,” said center director Brian McNeil.

Consistent with WSU’s land-grant mission, the center conducts research and participates in service and outreach programs to improve the social, economic, educational and political conditions of Latino/Mestizo and native/indigenous communities.
