When radio reporter Devin Browne began her foray to the edges of journalism, media commentators seized on her project quickly. Her multimedia journal uses prose, images and audio clips to tell a story about how she and a photographer moved into the cramped apartment of an immigrant family in MacArthur Park to learn Spanish.

Natalia M. Molina is an assistant professor of ethnic studies at UCSD. She is interested in how social and cultural values shape human understandings of issues related to disease and health, especially in regards to how they intersect with race and gender. Specifically, she researches the institution of public health and demonstrates how through its programs, discourse, and production of knowledge, public health officials in Los Angeles at the turn of the last century imbued meaning into the categories Mexican, Chinese, and Japanese.
