About the SSGA

Two years after Gloria Anzaldúa’s untimely death, the Society was created to provide a space for students, scholars and community to come together to continue with Anzaldúa’s vision and passion. In 2007, the Women Studies Institute (WSI) at the University of Texas at San Antonio became the SSGA’s academic home. Since 2009, every 18 months, in November and in May, the SSGA and WSI as co-sponsors of the conference host El Mundo Zurdo with the hope that you enjoy celebrating the life and work of one of our Tejana scholars, whose words have touched the world.

The SSGA was founded by Norma Cantú, Professor of Latina/Latino Studies and English at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
