Regina Marchi has spent 20 years studying Día de los Muertos traditions in the US and Latin America and is the author of the award-winning book Day of the Dead in the USA: The Migration and Transformation of a Cultural Phenomenon. She will discuss how Chicana/o artists initiated public Day of the Dead observances in the United States in 1972 and the cultural, political and commercial transformations of the celebration over the past 50 years. Marchi holds a Ph.D. in Communication from UC San Diego and is a Media Studies professor at Rutgers University, where she studies the intersections of media, culture and politics.
