Marcial González specializes in the study of Chicano/a literature, Chicana/o social movements, and critical theory. He is the author of Chicano Novels and the Politics of Form: Race, Class and Reification, published by the University of Michigan Press in 2009, and is currently writing a second book entitled “Farm Workers in Chicana/o Literature: The Making of Racial-Transnational Subjects,” which focuses on the lives and struggles of Mexican farm laborers as represented in Chicana/o narratives from 1960 to the present. This project seeks to link the experiences of U.S.-based Mexican farm workers to the building of an American empire in the twentieth century.
