"Changing Representations: How Chicanas Shaped American Politics"
Tiffany González is the Bonquois Postdoctoral Fellow in Women’s History at the Newcomb Institute. In 2020, she earned her Ph.D. in History from Texas A&M University with certificates in Women & Gender Studies and Latina/o-Mexican American Studies. Her research focuses on 20th Century U.S. History with convergence in American politics, Chicana/o-Latina/o, and women & gender history.
While at the Newcomb Institute, Tiffany is revising her dissertation into a book manuscript, Representation for Change: How Chicanas Transformed American Politics in the Twentieth Century. She is also collaborating with Newcomb’s Digital Research Internship Scrum team to launch a digital site titled, “Changing Representation: Tracing Latina Involvement in American Politics,” which maps the history of Latina politicians and government workers in the United States.
Tiffany’s academic pursuits also intersect in mentorship, interdisciplinary collaboration, and community engagement/service-learning commitments. She has years of experience mentoring first-generation students and women of color undergraduate students.
