On behalf of the SSGA, welcome to our relaunched blog! Our inaugural monthly blog post proudly features contributions from Xicana/Tejana artist and educator Celeste De Luna, SSGA committee member and professor Larissa Mercado-López, and queer Latin@ scholar and professor Eddy F. Alvarez.
Future posts will include contributions by community activist-scholars, artists, and writers. We will also have featured guest editors. As the November 2016 El Mundo Zurdo conference approaches, you will also find our CFP and other conference information listed. In addition to the blog, we also have a fb page and an instagram account. Reading, painting, or writing about Anzaldúa? Snap a pic and share it with us! We especially look forward to conference participant pics!
Finally, I’m honored to introduce myself as the new SSGA blogmaster. I’m Magda García, and have been part of the SSGA for the past seven years, from my time as an undergrad and MA student at the University of Texas at San Antonio to now as a current Ph.D. student in the Department of Chicana/o Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. I’m originally from the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas, and my current research focuses on affect, spatial poetics, and South Texas Chicana cultural productions.
