Show & Tell: “Occupying Our Space”
September 2, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm| Free
In collaboration with UA Press, UA’s Confluencenter for Creative Inquiry hosts “Occupying Our Space: Revolutionary Mexican Women Journalists and Activists,” presented by Cristina Ramírez.
Cristina Devereaux Ramírez, assistant professor in the Rhetoric, Composition, and the Teaching of English (RCTE) graduate program, examines revolutionary Mexican women journalists and activists and how they negotiated emerging national politics and changing feminine identities surrounding the Mexican Revolution.
Allowing their work to speak for them, Ramírez deftly reframes the conversation surrounding the rhetorical and intellectual role women played in the shifting political and national identity. This event is in collaboration with UA Press and a book release for Ramírez’s “Occupying Our Space: The Mestiza Rhetorics of Mexican Women Journalists and Activists, 1875-1942.”
