Jose Anguiano, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor, Honors College and Chicana/o and Latina/o Studies
José G. Anguiano is an Assistant Professor in the Honors College and the Department of Chicana/o and Latina/o Studies. He earned his B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley and his M.A./Ph.D. from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Dr. Anguiano is a cultural studies scholar with a primary focus in listeners and audiences of popular music. Dr. Anguiano’s research documents how popular music links communities of listeners across time and space, and how listening can be an active and creative form of claiming space, citizenship and respect. This research has led to a book project tentatively titled Latino Listening Cultures, which is an ethnographic account of select contemporary Latino listeners in the Southern California region. Dr. Anguiano will be teaching courses on music and sound in Chicana/o and Latina/o communities, and the city of Los Angeles.
