I am Sylvia Fernández a P.h.D. student at the Hispanic Studies Department in the University of Houston. My focus of study is U.S. Latina/o Literature with a concentration in U.S.-Mexico Borderlands Literature. I am currently working as a Research Fellow at the Recovering the U.S. Hispanic Literary Heritage. In early 2017 together with a colleague, Maira Alvarez, we started a digital humanities project called, Borderlands Archives Cartography (BAC) that work with U.S.-Mexico borderlands newspapers from 1808 to 1930.
