The Confluencenter for Creative Inquiry is kicking off its fall Show & Tell series Wednesday, Sept. 2, with a multimedia presentation on Revolutionary Mexican women journalists and activists.
Cristina Ramírez will also be celebrating the release of her book “Occupying Our Space: The Mestiza Rhetorics of Mexican Women Journalists and Activists, 1875-1942,” published by the University of Arizona Press.
The free event, a collaboration between the center and UA Press, takes place at 6 p.m at downtown’s Playground Bar & Lounge, 278 E. Congress St.
Ramírez will talk about groundbreaking women journalists and activists who carved out a space for themselves and future generations in the political climate surrounding the Mexican revolution, according to a prepared release.
Ramírez, who has traveled extensively in her research, is an assistant professor in the Rhetoric, Composition and the Teaching of English graduate program in the Department of English at the University of Arizona.
The Confluencenter works with faculty in the colleges of Humanities, Fine Arts and Social and Behavioral Sciences, awarding faculty collaboration grants for interdisciplinary research along with supporting a graduate fellows program.
“We’re really excited to partner with the Confluencenter,” UA Press Director Kathryn Conrad said in a prepared statement. “The center’s fostering and sharing of collaborative and interdisciplinary research complements our own work to connect scholarship to readers worldwide.”
