Describe your undergraduate research or creative project: 
I will be presenting my Spanish Capstone project, which centers on the femicide (the genocide of young, poor, migrant women) in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. Specifically, I will be examining the apathy of the politicians of Chihuahua toward the horror of feminicidio due to their relations to drug cartels, their economic reliance on their maquiladora factories, and the cultural gender violence of the northern border region of Mexico.
