My dissertation considers how the field of border studies within Ethnic Studies is inherently both translocal and interdisciplinary by looking at the U.S.-Mexico border. Specifically, my dissertation focuses on diasporic art activisms (artivism) and translocal social movement organizing in the San Diego-Tijuana border region against global settler colonialism, heteropatriarchy, environmental racism, and climate change.
