Book talk with 

Dr. Jesica Siham Fernández, Assistant Professor of Ethnic Studies, Santa Clara University

Moderator: Dr. Adrián Félix (Ethnic Studies UCR)


Speaker Bio: Trained as a social-community psychologist, Jesica Siham Fernández earned her Ph.D. in social psychology with an emphasis in Latin American and Latino studies from the University of California, Santa Cruz. As a community-engaged researcher, her scholarship is informed by a decolonial feminist praxis. Through a community-based participatory action research (PAR) paradigm―grounded in feminist epistemologies, Critical Race and LatCrit theories, and decolonial methodologies, such as testimonio―Dr. Fernández engages with communities to identify systemic problems affecting their lives, determine actions to address these conditions, and facilitate structural change.
