Join CLLAS and ASE Commons for a discussion with Dr. Michelle Téllez about her new book, Border Women and the Community of Maclovio Rojas: Autonomy in the Spaces of Neoliberal Neglect. In this ethnography, Téllez examines state neglect of the U.S./Mexico border region by learning from the community and women-led social movement of Maclovio Rojas situated near Tijuana, Baja California. She demonstrates how women have challenged notions of nation and belonging, contested and invoked citizenship for recognition of land rights, and transformed traditional political roles while forming their own political subjectivity as Maclovianas. 

Dr. Téllez is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mexican American Studies at the University of Arizona. Her public and academic scholarship focuses on transnational community formations, mothering, and gendered migration along the U.S./Mexico borderlands. Check out her work at www.michelletellez.com.
