Associate Professor

College of Liberal Arts

UT Austin

I have come to understand that teaching is not unidirectional; it’s an exchange, a place where past and present meet to impact, hopefully, the future. I may not have all the answers to student questions, but in these instances, I can model for them strategies and methods for researching the information they are seeking, teaching both me and them something in the process. Teaching has allowed me to be a life-long student.

Domino Renee Perez is Associate Professor in the Department of English and the Center for Mexican American Studies, specializing in Young Adult Fiction, Mexican American Literature, American Literature, Popular Culture, Cultural Studies, and Film.
