Olivia Ruiz Marrujo

Olivia was born in Eugene, Oregon, raised in Mexico and the United States, and has spent most of her life negotiating the borders between those two countries. Today she lives in Tijuana and San Diego, where she teaches and writes on borders, immigration, culture, and human rights. Ruiz’s poetry, essays, short prose, and scholarly writings reflect her upbringing in Mexico and the United States, her studies in anthropology and literature, her work with migrants, and her travel.
