Curriculum Vitae

Assistant Professor


Sergio González joins the Departments of History and of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures as an assistant professor of Latinx Studies. A native of Milwaukee, he received his PhD from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the spring of 2018 with a dissertation entitled “’I Was a Stranger and You Welcomed Me’: Latino Immigration, Religion, and Community Formation in Milwaukee, 1920-1990.” His teaching and research interests include U.S. labor and working-class and immigration history, and the histories of Chicano and Latinx communities and religion. Along with his research and teaching interests in Midwestern Latinx communities, González service commitments include working with MU’s Hispanic Serving Institution initiative.

 González was a 2016-2017 Marquette University Mitchem Fellow and is the author of Mexicans in Wisconsin (Madison: Wisconsin Historical Society Press, 2017). He received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from UW-Madison.

Current Scholarship: González is in the process of transitioning his dissertation into a manuscript. He is excited to collaborate with scholars on an interdisciplinary endeavor, “Building Sustainable Worlds: Latinx Placemaking in the Midwest,” an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation/Humanities Without Walls consortium-funded project that examines the significance of Latinx efforts in building sustainable communities in both urban and small-town environments across the region. Dr. González also serves on the editorial board of Wisconsin 101: Our History in Objects, a statewide, collaborative project exploring Wisconsin’s diverse, interconnected histories through objects.
