Faculty Bio:

Dr. Marisela R. Chávez is Associate Professor and Chair of the Chicana and Chicano Studies Department. She teaches and researches Chicana/o history, politics, and identity; women of color feminisms; U.S. social movements; oral history; and Latino/a immigration. She has published several articles on Chicana history and is presently revising a book manuscript that traces Chicana and Mexican American women’s activism in Los Angeles from the late 1960s to 1980. CHS 200 is one of Dr. Chávez’s favorite courses to teach because she gets to show students the different ways that Chicanas/os and Latinas/os have been an important part of U.S. history.
