Research Interests

Dissertation: "On the Shoulders of Generations: The Brown Berets of Aztlan in the Long Civil Rights Era" is a national history of the Chicano Movement through the prism of the Brown Berets organizations, which emerged from 1968-1981 throughout the United States. This study also engages and advances the Long Civil Rights Movement" (LCRM) construct by contextualizing the Chicano Movement within the Long Civil Rights Era. Thus, my work intends shed light on how we may rethink the Chicano Movement as a national phenomenon that impacts our understandings of Civil Rights in the United States.
