Jose Galvan Mora


Jojo Galvan-Mora is a doctoral student in History. He is interested in stories of urban placemaking, identity, labor, and politics in Chicago and its adjacent suburbs; especially as they pertain to the area’s black and brown communities. He maintains a strong public history practice, partnering with a number of Chicagoland museums and heritage institutions working to make histories told at these places more accessible, inclusive, and timely. Outside of his work, Jojo is an avid collector of mid-century furniture, rare and interesting books (his personal collection has over 3,000 volumes), and a stalwart consumer of horror films.
