In my teaching and research, I seek to understand how subjects marginalized within white supremacist-heteropatriarchal discourses and practices reclaim epistemic authority as they occupy the art, literature, film and other types of cultural production that document their stories and strategies of cultural survival. My published works include Indigeneity in the Mexican Cultural Imagination: Thresholds of Belonging with the University of Arizona Press in 2009 as well as articles in Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society, Latin American Literary Review, and Journal of Latin American Cultural Studies. I am working on two book projects, Mesoamerican Diaspora: Stories and Strategies of Resistance to Corporate Food Production and Daughters of the Moon: True Life Stories from the Lacandon Rain Forest.

Indigeneity in the Mexican Cultural Imagination

University of Arizona Press, 2009



As a full-fledged human being, I promise to think and to respect thinking,
to allow no invalidation of any scholar or teacher, including myself,
to refuse to be isolated from my colleagues or to act as an agent of oppression,
and to boldly apply my full knowledge and power to the creation of a just world.
