Manolo Callahan is an insurgent learner and convivial researcher with the Center for Convivial Research and Autonomy (CCRA). Callahan’s work explores three interwoven areas: the US/Mexico border and borderlands historically and in the present; Indigenous struggles across the Americas including Zapatista struggles in Chiapas; and convivial research, a community-based research approach that engages the intersections between Zapatismo, conviviality, and autonomous struggles throughout Greater Mexico. He also participates in the Universidad de la Tierra Califas, an autonomous learning space networked across the San Francisco Bay Area and connected to other autonomous campuses across Mexico and beyond.
