Gerardo Arellano completed his undergraduate studies in Comparative Ethnic Studies at UC San Diego. While at UCSD he was a Ronald E. McNair scholar, student activist, and co-founder of Spiderwebs (i.e. a multicultural student zine). Gerardo went on to receive his M.A. and Ph.D. from UC Berkeley in Ethnic Studies. As a true inter-disciplinarian, he currently researches and publishes in the areas of human rights, U. S. immigration policy, Latina/o subcultures, border studies, music, historical blocs, and subaltern movements. Equally important to his breadth as a scholar is his love for teaching. Gerardo believes in critical pedagogy and teaches at different universities in Southern California. Some classes that he teaches are Critical Race Theory and Marxism at UC Riverside. He also teaches Chicana/o and Latina/o history for the department of Chicana/o Studies at UC Irvine. He teaches history courses for the Chicana/o studies department at CSU Fullerton.
Robey Callahan, On 21 December 2005 I received my PhD in Linguistic and Cultural Anthropology from the University of Pennsylvania. My main theoretical interests are Linguistic and Cultural Anthropology; my main ethnographic area is Mesoamerica (more specifically Cobá, Quintana Roo, México). My dissertation research is on notions of self among the rural Maya of that region. I am also pursuing a separate study of the generic aspects of creativity, particularly as it is manifested in practical terms by those working in the UK advertising industry.
