Here is a little more information about Dr. González from his site:
"My name is Chris, but some people call me Christopher. Others call me professor or Dr. González. I am a deep-rooted Texan with connections to the flatlands of the west Texas Llano Estacado, the San Antonio area, the north Houston area, and the Dallas area. Central Ohio also holds a special place in my heart thanks to my doctoral work, and I am currently at the tippy-top of Utah (I can almost see Idaho from my house). My work and expertise are on Latinx narratives across media, which includes film, literature, television, comics, and pop culture. I write and comment on these areas of Latinx cultural production, and I am consistently working to bring more nuanced attention and exposure to Latinx narratives. I also try to uncover hidden histories of Latinx storytelling and critique the obstacles and barriers such writers and artists face. My 2017 book, Permissible Narratives: The Promise of Latino/a Literature, received Honorable Mention in the 2018 Perkins Prize, awarded to the book that makes the most significant contribution to the study of narrative in a given year. I am currently an associate professor of English at Utah State University, where I also serve as director of the Latinx Cultural Center. I received a bachelor’s from Sam Houston State University, a master’s from Texas A&M University-Commerce, and a PhD from The Ohio State University. I am married and have two teen daughters. I invite you to check out my work and to follow my blog."
