Gena Carpio

Faculty-in-Residence - Rieber Vista

Genevieve G. Carpio is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chicana/o Studies, where she researches the relationship between social identity and the built environment in multiracial places. A native of the California Inland Empire, Genevieve received a B.A. in Anthropology at Pomona College and went on to earn an M.A. in Urban Planning at UCLA. She completed her doctorate in the Department of American Studies and Ethnicity at USC where she studied “race and place” and its interdisciplinary emphases. She has a long-standing interest in public history and the digital humanities.

Genevieve enjoys a good cup of coffee and watching science fiction (especially Doctor Who, no spoilers). A favorite activity is traveling with her husband, Eric Gonzalez, a San Bernardino native with a range of hobbies including fishing and rocketry. They most recently traveled together to Australia, inspiring a new research project on the ways Mexican American history manifests in geographic locations far away from the American Southwest.
