Sergio M. González is an assistant professor of Latinx Studies in the Departments of History and Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at Marquette University. As a historian of twentieth-century U.S. immigration, labor, and religion, his scholarship focuses on the development of Latino communities in the U.S. Midwest. His first book, Mexicans in Wisconsin, offered a concise introductory history of Mexican settlement and community formation across the state. His current project, Strangers No Longer: Latino Belonging and Faith in 20th Century Wisconsin, explores the relationship between religiosity, Latinidad, and social justice movements in twentieth century Wisconsin. González has bridged his academic scholarship to broader audiences by serving as a founder of and lead organizer for the Dane Sanctuary Coalition as well as serving on the board of Voces de la Frontera Action, the advocacy arm of Wisconsin’s largest and most active membership-based immigrant justice organization.
