Dr. Mendoza's previous research in English/Rhetoric Studies has focused on development of critical pedagogy through a foundation of rhetoric methodology examining contemporary Chicana/o/x art practices, post-dictatorship Latin American literature/film, and post-WWII North American Speculative Fiction, as sources of aesthetic rhetoric from which to develop critical teaching. His current research expands on this work, combining these fields in a hemispheric, Indigenous-centered analysis of speculative works of the Americas that employ allegory poetics as transformative mechanisms of aesthetic rhetoric. Before coming to CSUN, he was a tenured Associate Professor of Chicana/o Studies at East Los Angeles College, where he taught since 2009.
