I would like to serve on the FAC. I have served one other time. I am an interdisciplinary scholar who has participated not only in my own department, Anthropology, but also in Ethnic Studies, WGSS, Latin American Studies and several research centers. I founded and directed the Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies for 8 years, was a co-director of the Center for the Center for the Study of Women in Society, and also was at the Oregon Humanities Center. I have 20 years of experience at UO as a department chair, senior scholar, center director, and other roles. I look forward to bringing an interdisciplinary voice to the FAC spanning Social Sciences, Humanities, and Sciences. I have done a lot of thinking about issues across the University and look forward to provide this big picture perspective on the FAC. I am particularly interested in the future relationship between the Knight Campus and the rest of UO.
