Genevieve Carpio (McNair Scholar; Provost Fellow; Ford Fellow) received her MA in Urban Planning with a focus on community development and the built environment from UCLA in 2007. She is currently a PhD candidate in American Studies and Ethnicity under the direction of Dr. George Sanchez. She has presented her work at the American Historical Association, American Studies Association, Urban Historical Association, California Preservation Foundation, and is commited to breaking down the barriers that separate the academy and the community at-large.
Carpio is interested in the relationship between the built environment and public memory, Latinos in the US, and the assertion and negotion of identity through space. Her dissertation "Organizing the Inland Empire: Racial and Regional Formation in Southern California, 1900-1950" examines the rise of regional identity and racial stratification through the shifting tropes of settlement and migration in the Inland Empire. The project traces the ways the legacy of immigration enforcement has culminated into both policies targeting immigrant mobility and efforts ensure regional democracy through suburban activism in southern California.
