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.
