Incredibly Diverse Collection of Latinx Comics

 Latinx Comics Anthology 

Excited to have gotten my signed copy of Tales from la Vida: A Latinx Comics Anthology (Latinographix) . It's a beautiful collection of short selections of many Latinx comic authors with topics ranging from identity to pop culture to immigration and mythology. 



I would definitely encourage anyone who's interested in learning more about Latinx comics to pick up a copy because it provides a wide swath of styles, topics, and artists to choose from (and hopefully read more from.)

Comment and Response in College English

Response essay with Aja Martinez and Gloria Howerton

A few months back, I co-wrote an essay with Aja Martinez and Gloria Howerton responding to an essay College English had published on Tucson High School's Mexican American Studies program. We raised questions about the use of terms like "dead" and "illegal" that seemed to sensationalize the program, as well as suggestions for decolonial methodologies that resist colonial narratives about the absence of indigenous knowledge and culture in contested spaces like the Southwest.
