The 2020 Student Research Forum keynote speaker is Dr. Juan De Lara.
About the speaker: Juan De Lara is a geographer and an Associate Professor in American Studies and Ethnicity at the University of Southern California. His book, Inland Shift: Race, Space, and Capital in Inland Southern California (UC Press, 2018), uses logistics and commodity chains to unpack the black box of globalization by showing how the scientific management of bodies, space, and time produced new labor regimes that facilitated a more complex and extended system of global production, distribution, and consumption. Professor De Lara’s research interests include social movements, urban political economy, Latinx geographies, logistics, immigration, and the racial politics of big data analytics.
