About

I am a courtesy assistant professor in the Department of English, and an affiliate of the Department of Indigenous, Race, and Ethnic Studies, at the University of Oregon. I research in the fields of Indigenous studies, Latinx studies, border studies, media studies, environmental humanities, digital humanities, and sports studies. I teach courses on Latinx literature and Native American literature, as well as on narrative cartography, Latinx policy, race and sports, border crime writing, and Latinx comics. I am currently at work on a book manuscript about how national borders function as technical and textual practices, titled “Hyperborders: Cultural Techniques of the Trans-American Borderlands.” I am also developing a critical GIS project creating what I call “moralized road maps” of migration narratives.
