Full Summary: Michael Montoya (UC-Irvine) on "Healthy Dissent: Urban Ecologies and the Art of Relational Politics"

All are welcome for the Spring Public Lecture of the Working Group on Race and Racism in Contemporary Biomedicine, an interdisciplinary and cross-institution initiative supported by GT-FIRE. The title of the lecture is "Healthy Dissent: Urban Ecologies and the Art of Relational Politics."

Michael J. Montoya is a professor of anthropology, Chicano/Latino Studies, public health and nursing science at the University of California, Irvine. He is the author of Making the Mexican Diabetic: Race, Science, and the Genetics of Inequality. Montoya is also the director of the Community Knowledge Project, which is an experimental space for communities of all kinds to learn and engage in action together. Montoya's work seeks to characterize the ways community knowledge can make academic questions more relevant and research more robust. Equally important, he believes that making community is a birthright and that health and wellbeing require it.
