Sonia Hernandez

Associate Professor
Department of History
College of Liberal Arts

Sonia Hernandez specializes in the intersections of gender and labor in the US-Mexican borderlands, Chicana/o history, and modern Mexico.

Hernandez will use the example of an attempted lynching of a Mexican migrant in the 1900-era Texas to produce a book on how such moments of violence led regional Mexican and Anglo American elites and working-class Mexicans from Texas and northern Mexico to create unlikely cross-border alliances to mitigate violence.
