LALACS Today

On Focus

Jessica De La Ossa, the César Chávez fellow for 2013-2014, is a Ph.D Candidate in the School of Geography and Development at the University of Arizona. She is a social geographer studying the emotional and affective dimensions of citizenship along the US-Mexico border. Her dissertation titled The Politics of Proximity and Distance: Identity and Intimacy in US Border Cities, draws from non-representational and feminist theory to investigate an ethics of care of distant others. Her work is relevant to a number of debates within cultural, social, and urban geography, and advances our knowledge of the relationship between landscapes, objects, and emotions that better accounts for the spatial imaginaries of border citizens and the new orientations taken towards “illegal” migrants and securitized landscapes.
