Assoc. Prof. Dr. Santiago Vaquera-Vásquez

Santiago Vaquera-Vásquez, author, academic, "unrepentant" border-crosser and ex-DJ, was "made in Mexico but born in the U.S," or so he tells his students. His varied identities -- Chicano, border-crosser and voracious reader -- has helped to shape his life as a writer.
