On Monday, October 30, the UNM English Department and the Center for Southwest Research collaborated in a festive celebration of Rudolfo Anaya’s 80th birthday. Scholars, family members, and friends gathered at the Waters Room in Zimmerman Library for an afternoon dedicated to honoring the great New Mexico author, whose work has founded the canon of Chicana/o literature, and who inspired generations of writers across the Southwest and beyond. The Rudolfo Anaya Digital Archive, managed by the UNM Digital Initiative and Scholarly Communication, continues to develop the interactive online portal through which patrons can access Anaya’s original manuscripts, as well as related information, links, and academic resources. The Digital Archive is designed to enhance the experience of reading Anaya’s work and enable scholarly exchange of research, analysis, and criticism.
