A presentation from 2023–2024 Perrin Moorhead Grayson and Bruns Grayson Fellow Rosalva Aida Hernández Castillo

Hernández Castillo’s book, “Digging for Hope in Mexico: A Feminist Ethnography in the Land of Mass Graves,” will offer an ethnographic account of family collectives searching for their disappeared loved ones throughout Mexico. Drawing on interviews, participant observation, and activist research, it will examine how in a context of extreme violence and impunity, the women of these collectives have created emotional links that develop into political actions.


Free and open to the public.
