Human and cultural geography, race and indigeneity, social movements, Latin America and California
I am geographer and curator with a focus on identity, space and social movements in Latin America and the United States. Since 2003 I have conducted ethnographic and archival research in the Mexican states of Jalisco and Nayarit with a primary focus on urban indigenous university students and young professionals. My scholarship engages human and cultural geography, critical race theory, cultural studies, political ecology and urban studies. My current research examines the politics of solidarity within interracial and cross-geographic alliances that mobilize around indigenous culture and territory.
