Engaged Scholars: Elena Foulis
My scholarship draws from pressing social issues in Latina/o/x communities and it is informed by creating reciprocal and respectful relationships with individuals, and the local community. It seeks to address and learn from societys pressing issues such as immigration, language access, and representation in Latina/o/x communities, inside and outside the university. I do this through various public-facing projects such as oral history, open-educational resources, service-learning, performance, and podcasting.
