Magally A. Miranda Alcázar

Ph.D. student in Chicana/o Studies at UCLA

Magally A. Miranda Alcázar is a first year M.A./Ph.D. student in Chicana/o Studies at UCLA where she is also pursuing a certificate in Experimental Critical Theory. Her research interests include Marxist feminist critical theory and Chicana feminist and borderlands epistemology. Her thesis focuses on the exclusion of domestic workers from modern labor relations and the gendered and racialized stigma attached to domestic work. Situated in the emerging literature on economic justice and low-wage immigrant workers, she will be conducting research this summer on domestic work in Los Angeles with support from the Institute for Research on Labor and Employment (IRLE) and the UCLA Labor Center. Magally sits on the editorial collective of Viewpoint Magazine where she published her notes on an ethnographic inquiry of domestic workers in the California Bay Area titled “The Power of Trabajadoras and the Subversion of Capital.”
