Celina Osuna is a writer, scholar, and artist in Mesa, Arizona.
Born in El Paso, Texas, it took leaving the desert to realize how much arid environs shape and influence cultures and experiences—especially her own. Osuna is interested in revealing the many complexities that emerge from an engagement with the human and more-than-human entanglements of desert places.
She is the Project Coordinator at the Global Drylands Center at ASU. Her manuscript for Desert Distortion is under contract with Texas Tech University Press and is coming soon.
