Jovita Gonzalez Lecture Series Presents: Dr. Brenda Sendejo

Writer and scholar Dr. Brenda Sendejo will be visiting South Texas College this March during our Jovita Gonzalez Lecture Series.

Dr. Sendejo will visit three of South Texas College’s campuses, starting with a visit on March 4, 2020, at 1:00 pm, she will be at the Mid-Valley Campus Library, then she will visit Pecan Campus Library Rainbow Room at 6:00 pm. On March 5, 2020 at 10:00 am, Dr. Sendejo will conclude her visit at the Starr County Campus Library.

Dr. Sendejo is a Chicana/Tejana feminist anthropologist who researches spiritual activism and the Chicana feminist movement in Texas. Her book manuscript in progress is titled, The Face of God Has Changed: Chicana Feminism and the Politics of Spirituality in the Borderlands. Sendejo employs feminist and decolonial pedagogies and methodologies as an educator-scholar and Director of the Latina History Project, an intergenerational oral history/digital archival project that documents Chicana/Latina feminism and activism in Texas since the 1960s. She is a contributor to Chicana Movidas: New Narratives of Activism and Feminism in the Movement Era, edited by Maylei Blackwell, Maria Cotera, and Dionne Espinoza (UT Press, 2018). In that essay Sendejo examines the intellectual genealogy of Chicana feminism and its roots in Austin, Texas. Sendejo currently serves as Associate Professor and Chair of Feminist Studies at Southwestern University, and affiliate faculty in Anthropology, Latin American and Border Studies, and Race and Ethnicity Studies

Her research explores how prominent Mexican American writers of Mexican descent, such as Jovita González, used literature to respond to the dominative history of the United States.
