The Convergent Media Collective is proud to announce Corina Zavala, a member of the collective successfully defended her dissertation on April 29th at the Sanchez building at the University of Texas at Austin. She is receiving her degree from the Cultural Studies in Education program, housed out of the Curriculum and Instruction Department in the College of Education.
Her work focused on the women’s experiences during the Chicano Movement, she performed writing sessions with four women from Crystal City who experienced the movement taking place in their city and their words are shared and analyzed through a very unique and powerful lens that is sure to add to the canon of Chican@ studies and education alike.
Her dissertation committee consisted of some of the top scholars in the field, such as Dr. Luis Urrieta, Dr. Douglas Foley, Dr. Cinthia Salinas, Dr. Noah De Lizzovoy and Dr. Allucquere Sandy Stone.
On behalf of the Convergent Media Collect we congratulate Dr. Corina Zavala and her great accomplishment!
