Latina/o Studies Concentrator presented her work at the Biennial Urban History Conference

Latina/o Studies Concentrator Isabel Pena presented her work on “The New O.C.: Race, Space, Immigration and the Making of Post-suburban California” at the Biennial Urban History Conference in Columbia, South Carolina.

Isabel was able to present a working draft of her first chapter and preliminary findings to conference attendees, as well as attend presentations ranging from grassroots organizing in Wisconsin to queer urbanisms in the Twin Cities.

Isabel reports “The conference has left me with so much to ruminate over as I continue my work and the feedback and conversations I engaged with will prove crucial in the completion of my thesis.”

Latina/o Studies at Williams helped to fund Isabel’s attendance at the conference.
