Ever wonder about the career opportunities waiting for you post-SJSU? Or how you can give back to your community using the knowledge you've gained? Look no further! Each Spring, we invite speakers to give a one hour talk about just that. This month, we welcome Dr. Christine Vega!
Born and raised in Pacoima California, Dra. Christine Vega is a proud San Fernando Valley grassroots community scholar, deeply impacted by the rich historical, communal, and spiritual collectives that shaped her trajectories. She is a community-based mother-scholar-activist merging academia, activism, and spirituality in her pedagogy and research. Her research has focused on Motherscholar Activism(s) and their everyday movidas, as Chicanas/xs, Latinas/xs and Indigenous Motherscholars enrolled in Ph.D. programs in U.S. Southwest universities and in community counter spaces. Dra. Vega is the co-founder of Mothers of Color in Academia de UCLA and the Chicana M(other)work collective.
Join us on March 21, 2023 at 4:30 PM as Dr. Vega where we will journey with her on how she arrived at her work, the fruitful grassroots and mother-led Motherscholar activism, and the future directions of working alongside mothers/parents in her hometown of Pacoima, in the Northeast San Fernando Valley.
