Diversity and Ethnic Studies

As Las Vegas continues to grow, we encounter diverse faces, languages, and cultures in schools and communities. This lecture will discuss demographics, racial/ethnic history, and contemporary local

She received her Ph.D. at the UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies within the division of Social Sciences and
Comparative Education. Her areas of expertise include Latina/o Critical Theory, Critical Race Theory, Education, and 301). Chicana/Latina Feminist and Queer Studies.
