Veronica Solis Mora

I am a second-year #FirstGen Ph.D. student. My research question lies between conservation, human, and other-than-human rights in the multicultural indigenous territories of the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve in Mexico. I aim to understand the forms of relationships between the different ethnic groups with the forest, their challenges, and agencies within foreign conservation agenda that remaps their territories while producing ecological and political transformations.

Before Rice, I started cultural community projects in San Francisco, California, Acapulco, and Mexico City; in the latter, I got certificates in Human Rights and Art Curatorial Projects; those studies are lenses in my approach and inspire my multimodal work. In my undergraduate studies, I founded the Minorities in Anthropology Club at the University of Santa Cruz.
