CRGS welcomes new Assistant Professor, Nancy Pérez!

Nancy Pérez teaches Chican@/Latinx Lives and Growing Up Chicana/Latino. Her research interests include Mexican and Central American migration, immigrant labor, transnationalism, cultures of resistance, and theoretical perspectives on the body and pain. Her work has examined the domestic worker experience and the ways the occupation has transformed workers’ bodies through time. She has also conducted research on the domestic worker rights movement in the U.S., publishing an article titled “Migrant Domestic Workers and the Changing Landscape of Activism.” More recently, she has written on the embodied memories of first and second-generation youth and their experience accompanying their parents to work for most of their lives.

CouRaGeouS Cuentos: A Journal of


 CouRaGeouS Cuentos is comprised of cuentos (narratives) written and edited by students enrolled in the ES 107: Chican@/Latin@ Lives class (see the second issue). This project, under the leadership of CRGS faculty member Maria Corral-Ribordy and CRGS major Carlos Molina, with the support of Dean Oberlander and the library staff, the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, along with the department of Critical Race, Gender and Sexuality Studies, lies at the intersection of best practices for student learning and student retention. Not only are students writing for publication, and thus seeing themselves as active producers of knowledge, but they are filling a void in the academy, as their stories and the stories of their communities have largely been missing.
