Cynthia Bejarano, an associate professor in the Department of Criminal Justice at New Mexico State University, will present a lecture, "Terrorizing Women: Feminicide and Gender Violence at the U.S.-Mexico Borderlands."
Bejarano is the author of the book "Qué Onda? Urban Youth Cultures and Border Identity," which is based on four years of ethnographic work in an urban southwestern high school. Most recently, she is the co-editor with Rosa-Linda Fregoso of an interdisciplinary anthology, "Terrorizing Women: A Cartography of Feminicide in the Américas."
Bejarano is also a dedicated community activist and teacher. She is the principal investigator for a multi-million dollar, federally and state funded program, which assists the children of farm workers seeking to attend NMSU.
The lecture is sponsored by the MSU Department of Sociology and Anthropology, the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures and the College of Letters and Science. Bejarno's lecture is part of the inauguration celebration for MSU President Waded Cruzado.
