Where Ideas, Tensions Converge

October 1, 2018

A professor of religion and Latinx studies at Harvard Divinity School and Romance languages and literatures at the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Mayra Rivera draws on her cross-disciplinary background in her role as faculty chair of the Committee on Ethnicity, Migration, Rights (EMR), the interdepartmental program that focuses on the group’s title categories, paying particular attention to Asian American, Latinx, and Native American studies.

Rivera took that chair last fall. We asked her about her vision for EMR’s evolving role on campus, and how her work with the committee connects to her own fields of study.
