Fieldwork: Marfa

At Fieldwork: Marfa annual meeting #2 (october 2013) Norma Iglesias-Prieto discusses the role that cinema - and, more recently, video - has played in the construction of the social imaginary of the Mexico-US border.

Norma iglesias-Prieto, a transborder scholar, is professor and chair of San Diego State University’s chicana/o studies department, as well as the graduate adviser of the transborder studies MA program. Her education is interdisciplinary and includes social anthropology, communication theory, sociology, and media Production. She worked for 22 years in the cultural studies department at El Colegio de la Frontera Norte. Her professional experience is anchored in Border studies, with a focus on cultural processes and social-gendered identities on the u.s.-mexican border from a transborder/ transnational perspective. Her latest book is Emergencia: las Artes Visuales en Tijuana (2008).
