Folklorist Dr. Rachel Gonzalez-Martin will speak about the folklore and traditions enriching Texas, and the historical value of stories.

ABOUT STORIES

This series of audio documentaries is produced as part of Texas Folklife’s community documentary training program, Stories from Deep in the Heart Summer Institute. Applicants craft stories with instruction and guidance from audio radio producers and the guest folklorist instructor.

ABOUT Dr. Rachel Gonzalez-Martin

Dr. Rachel González-Martin is a Folklorist and an Assistant Professor of Latino Studies at the University of Texas at Austin. She holds a PhD in Folklore & Ethnomusicology from Indiana University. She is interested in the politics of storytelling from the vantage point of race, class, and gender identification—focusing primarily on women of color feminisms and youth culture. She is interested in how women and femme communities narrate personal experiences through the body, and through body modifications. She has recently completed her book, Quinceañera Style: Social Belonging and Latinx Consumer Identities due out in the fall of 2019 with UT press. She also co-edited the book Race and Cultural Practice in Popular Culture (Rutgers UP) with fellow folklorist, Domino R. Perez.
