The publishing house Quinto Sol was established in 1967 by Octavio Romano with the goal of bringing Chicano literature to the forefront of American culture. The materials it published were crucial in the consolidation of Chicanos Studies Departments in California and throughout the Southwest. This seminar celebrates Quinto Sol’s lasting impact through a series of panel discussions with celebrated scholars and artists.
