- About Me
I am a PhD Candidate in History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and my dissertation examines how the everyday social-cultural experiences of ethnic Mexicans, and in particular ethnic Mexican women, redefined the concept of gateway communities in California’s San Joaquin Valley from 1965 to 1995. I earned my master’s from UW-Madison where I situated the school’s Chican@ and Latin@ Studies Program into the larger Chicanx Movement to explore the contours of race, space, and belonging in higher education. I have served as the Pedagogy Project Assistant for UW-Madison’s Department of History, as well as the Baldwin Project Assistant for the Wisconsin Latinx History Collective. All this to say, as a first-generation Chicana scholar, I am interested in opening up doors for future scholars of color to see this path as an avenue for themselves.
