E. Mark Moreno

Assistant Professor of History, Texas A&M University-Commerce
My work centers around relationships between race, community, identity, and violence. In research on Chicana/o history, I study the development of street gangs in the context of urban transformation and de facto racial segregation.

Mike Tapia

Asst. Prof., University of Texas-San Antonio
I aim to explore the origins of particular Chicano/Latino gangs in cities. I am particularly interested in new formations in non-traditional Latino destinations in the U.S. far from the Southwestern region.
