What I do
Associate Professor in Media, Film and Journalism Studies.
My research focuses on multicultural journalism with a particular emphasis on efforts to include women and people of color in mainstream news, as well as Indigenous women of Latin America in the creation of their own journalistic stories. I am involved in community engaged and participatory action research and teaching, and bring students to the U.S./Mexico border for a summer course each year.
