Brendan H. O’Connor is Assistant Professor in the School of Transborder Studies and Affiliated Faculty in the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College at Arizona State University. He is a linguistic anthropologist of education whose research and teaching focus broadly on language, identity, and the cultural context of schooling in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands
