New Chapter by Senior Research Associate Adriana Villavicencio: “Of and With: Stories of Belonging and Negotiating Multiple Latin@ Identities”

Dr. Adriana Villavicencio has contributed a chapter to Abriendo Puertas, Cerrando Heridas (Opening Doors, Closing Wounds): Latinas/os Finding Work-Life Balance in Academia, edited by Frank Hernandez (University of Texas of the Permian Basin), Elizabeth Murakami-Ramalho (University of Texas at San Antonio), and Gloria M. Rodriguez (UC Davis). The book focuses on the experiences of Latina/o students, professors, and staff in higher education.  

Dr. Villavicencio’s chapter, co-authored with Mónica Byrne-Jiménez (Hofstra University), explores diversity within the Latino community, and how this affects identity politics and relationships among Latino academics. The chapter presents individual stories as well as a roundtable conversation, followed by analysis and a discussion of some implications for the continued growth of the larger Latino academic community.
