About the event
Join us for a MACRI Talk with Dr. Tiffany González on the changing representations of Chicanas in the Second-Wave Feminist Movement & Texas Politics.
Tiffany González is an Assistant Professor at James Madison University (JMU) where she teaches courses on Latinx History, Social Movements, and Women in Politics. She is currently working on her manuscript-in-progress, Representation of Change: How Chicanas Reshaped the American Political Process in the Late Twentieth Century, which examines how Chicanas contributed to changing Texas politics and the second-wave feminist movement. In her next book project, Tiffany will explore the life of Representative Irma Rangel, the first Mexican American woman state representative in Texas. After this academic year, Tiffany will be a fellow at the Schlesinger Institute of Harvard University and at the Clement Center at Southern Methodist University.
