About the Authors
Ana Carolina Díaz Beltrán is a clinical assistant professor of multicultural education at Texas A&M University and a former social studies teacher. Her research focuses on the living experiences of citizenship of transnational Latina/o/e/x immigrant youth to inform teaching practices and curriculum. Dr. Díaz Beltrán engages narrative forms of inquiry and autoethnographic research to complicate, historicize, and counter oversimplified, abstract conceptualizations of children’s experiences of citizenship and belonging that are void from experience. Her work is informed by the work of decolonial, postcolonial, and Chicana feminist scholars of color.
