Moshoula Capous-Desyllas, PhD, MSW, is an assistant professor in the sociology department at California State University, Northridge. She teaches social work courses in anti-oppressive practice, diversity and social justice, human behavior in the social environment, and social work methods. Her interests include arts-based research methods, community-based participatory action research, community organizing and advocacy, social work with immigrants, trans-global migration issues, commercial sex work, and intersecting oppressions. She is committed to facilitating community dialogue and a deeper understanding about issues of diversity and social justice through art. Her passion lies in highlighting the voices of marginalized communities through the use of art as a form of activism, empowerment and social change. When school isn’t in session, she can be found kayaking in the Sea of Cortez or the Agean Sea, or lost in the global South with a backpack in tow.
