Author Spotlight: Interview with Owens Book Award Winner Genevieve Carpio, author of Collisions at the Crossroads

"My hope is that Collisions at the Crossroads provides an example of how place-based and mobility-based research can spark new insights into race-making, especially how it unfolds over the 20th century. The spatial-turn and place-based studies were so important to me in graduate school. I see similar potential in mobility (or mobilities) based research. I hope that my book contributes to this exchange."
