Dr. Cati de los Ríos is an Assistant Professor in the School of Education at UC Davis.  De los Ríos’s research explores the intersections of adolescent literacies, transnationalism, translanguaging, ethnic studies, and teacher education. In her talk, Dr. de los Ríos will bring to attention, "Using photographs, interviews, students’ literacy artifacts, focus groups, and field notes, this talk asks (a) What do literacies look like in an Ethnic Studies course that designed learning around local community knowledge and sanctuary? And (b) How do students respond to such curricular designing?" 2019-2020 Helen LeBaron Hilton Chair Series
