I have a dual position, split between the University of Arizona’s Southwest Center and School of Geography and Development. As assistant editor of Journal of the Southwest, I have worked to build on the university’s tradition of collaborative investigation and publication with Mexican institutions. JSW also publishes across the social sciences and humanities, focusing on northwest Mexico and the greater Southwest. My research and teaching interests range widely, from the geographies of institutions and rural development in Mexico and Latin America, to the connections between everyday life and the broader quest to create spaces for social justice and autonomous environmental politics.
