Keynote Presentation for Intersectional Women's Center: Dr. Sandibel Borges | WisCommunity

Dr. Borges will discuss how the mothers of Women of Color Feminisms and Queer of Color Critique have long taught us the need for our own spaces, organization, and knowledge in the face of exclusion, marginalization, and oppression within so called progressive spaces. Dr. Sandibel Borges is an assistant professor of Women's and Gender Studies at Loyola Marymount University. Her work is situated within the fields of Women of Color and transnational feminism, gendered and queer migrations, queer of color critique, disability justice, and critical ethnic studies. Her current book project uses ethnography, oral histories, and archival research to examine the colonial and genocidal logics of the U.S. immigration system. It further studies the ways in which queer, trans, and gender nonconforming migrants, looking at the Latinx migrant population specifically, resist and refuse such logics. Dr. Borges's work has appeared in the journals Diálogo, Women's Studies Quarterly, the Journal of Lesbian Studies, Chicana/Latina Studies: The Journal of Mujeres Activas en Letras y Cambio Social, and Feminist Formations, and in the anthology Displacement, Belonging, and Migrant Agency in the Face of Power.
