- Research focus
- I use interdisciplinary methods, particularly Chicana Feminist Theory and Performance Studies, to interrogate strategies for minoritarian resistance and survivance deployed in the picturebook art form. My project considers how aesthetic/political strategies contribute to library services for children and families. Through this work, I aim to foster conversations between critical ethnic studies approaches in library science curriculum and children's library services.
