June 16, 2023 - UNM Newsroom
The Center for Regional Studies (CRS) has announced the Tribal/Community College Research Scholar appointment of Steven A. Romero for a summer 2023 residency. Romero is an adjunct English instructor at Central New Mexico Community College and will begin an assistant professor of English position at The University of New Mexico-Valencia campus beginning Fall 2023.
Having earned his master’s degree in English, Romero is now pursuing his Ph.D. in Chicana and Chicano Studies with a concentration in Community-Engaged Learning and Curriculum Development. CRS will financially support Romero as he reports on the implementation of his curriculum projects, the Salt of the Earth Recovery Project Digital Archive and the Salt of the Earth: A Teaching and Learning Resource website, in his English Composition and Introduction to Global and Ethnic Studies courses. Each will serve as the foundation for his students’ capstone projects, which will be to create their own digital archive on a topic exploring their lived experiences informed by historical and/or cultural complexities.
