We’re excited to announce that Romeo Guzman is now an associate editor at Tropics of Meta, and will be taking on a major role in the management and creative direction of the site. An assistant professor of History at California State University, Fresno, Romeo is an award-winning public historian and the founder and director of Fresno State’s Valley Public History Initiative: Preserving our Stories. He has already been a big part of ToM in the past through our collaboration with South El Monte Arts Posse’s East of East: Mapping Community Narratives in South El Monte and El Monte project. Romeo’s research follows Mexican migrant families and Mexican American youth across the U.S.-Mexico border and explores transnational citizenship, agency, and belonging, and his work has appeared in a number of outlets, including History of the Family, Iconic Mexico, Boom: A Journal of California as well as popular outlets such as Artbound, KCET Departures, and Letras Libras. Welcome, RG!
