Research

I am interested in Latin American, Mexican & Chicano/a Literature and Culture. In particular, I’m interested in Latin American literature with an emphasis on the Mexican and Mexican-American diaspora and the cross-border cultural and political factors that define the tripartite heritage of Mexicans, as Mexican nationals, Mexican Americans, and U.S. Latinos. My current research focuses on the Afro-mestizo heritage in Mexican culture.
