"Otro Mundo Es Posible: Textiles and Garments for Protest in Chiapas, Mexico: examines garments and textiles in Chiapas, Mexico and how they are and have been important to political movements in the region and beyond.

Her research explores how textiles played and continue to play a role in the Zapatistas Movement.
