Laura Pulido is Professor of Geography and Ethnic Studies, and Chair of the Dept. of Ethnic Studies, at the University of Oregon. She works at the intersection of geography and critical ethnic studies, especially Chicanx Studies, to explore how racial, class and gender hierarchies shape places and how places inform racial and economic processes. She has published widely in academic and popular venues, and is the author and editor of several books, including Black Brown Yellow & Left: Radical Activism in Los Angeles (California, 2006), A People’s Guide to Los Angeles (w/ L. Barraclough & W. Cheng, California, 2012).

We would like to take the time to acknowledge that the work of the Department of Geography takes place on the unceded, ancestral territories of the Coast Salish peoples of the xʷməθkwəyəm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səlílwətaɬ(Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
