Rachel V González-Martin

Special guest

Dr. González-Martin holds a Ph.D. in Folklore & Ethnomusicology from Indiana University. Her research focuses on the verbal and material traditions of communities coming-of-age in the American Latino Diaspora. Her work looks at personal-experience-narratives, body art, materiality and self-portraiture with regard to gender, sexual identities, race, and socioeconomic status. Her teaching interests include courses on Latino expressive culture across the U.S., engaged ethnographic fieldwork, and Critical Latino Folkloristics. She is currently working on a book manuscript that explores the intersection of consumer citizenship and Latino identity in the 21st century titled, Coming Out Latina: Quinceañera Style and Latina/o Consumer Identities.
