Michelle Téllez (University of Arizona)

Téllez has a long history of grassroots community engagement and activism in multiple social justice projects that draw on critical pedagogy, principles of sustainability, community-based arts, performance, and visual media. Her scholarly work focuses on identity, mothering, transnational community formation, cross-border labor organizing, gendered migration, and autonomy and resistance along the U.S./Mexico border.  Her public lecture will draw on recent social justice organizing along the U.S. Mexico border, and focus specifically on women’s narratives of resistance.
