LaSA welcomes Dr. G. Cristina Mora, author of “Making Hispanics”
On Friday, Nov. 13, the Latin American Staff Association (LaSA) will host a charla con café (coffee chat) with Dr. G. Cristina Mora, associate professor of sociology and Chicano/Latino studies and co-director of the Institute of Governmental Studies at UC Berkeley.
Dr. Mora’s research focuses mainly on questions of census racial classification, immigration and racial politics in the United States and Europe. Her book, “Making Hispanics,” was published by the University of Chicago Press. It provides the first historical account of the rise of the “Hispanic/Latino” pan-ethnic category in the U.S. This work has received wide recognition and has been the subject of numerous national media segments.
In April 2020, Professor Mora helped to oversee the largest survey on COVID-19 and racial disparities in California. She is also the recipient of the 2020 Graduate Mentoring Award from the UC Berkeley Academic Senate, which recognizes her teaching and mentoring work with students on campus.
During this event, Dr. Mora will discuss her work in Chicano/Latina Studies and discuss the impact COVID-19 has had, and continues to have, on the Hispanic community. Download an event flyer.
