About meOriginal from Argentina, I live in New York City and am a Sociology professor at St John's University. I've done and published research about social movements in Argentina and more recently, about Violence against Latina Immigrants in the U.S. My book about the latter is soon to be published by NYU Press. I've been teaching courses on Gender, Immigration and Inequality and Family Violence.
About my libraryI'm sharing books that were pivotal in my intellectual and political development. I do activist research, which means that I work with/in the community where I'm developing research about with the intention of working on real social issues from the perspective of and in collaboration with those affected.
