Prior to moving to USD, she had been a Professor of Latina/o/x Studies and Religion at Williams College, where she also served as chair of Religion; chair of Latina/o Studies; Associate Dean for Institutional Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; and Director of the Oakley Center for the Humanities and Social Sciences. A past president of the Academy of Catholic Hispanic Theologians of the United States (ACHTUS) as well as the New England/Eastern Canada Region of the Society of Biblical Literature, she is the author of Latina/o/x Studies and Biblical Studies in Brill Research Perspectives in Biblical Interpretation 3.4 (2020), as well as Revelation in Aztlán: Scriptures, Utopias, and the Chicano Movement (Palgrave Macmillan, 2016). With Efraín Agosto, she also co-edited the collection of essays Latinxs, the Bible, and Migration (Palgrave Macmillan, 2018). She is a student of scriptures as human social phenomena with particular interests in how and why certain Latina/o/x communities make, contest, and refashion their own scriptures. As a consequence, she examines the intersections of scriptures, apocalypticism, utopianism, ethnicity, race, gender, sexuality, class, and religion relationally in the U.S. and in relationship to deep histories in the Americas and the ancient Mediterranean.
