Muñoz completed her doctoral degree at the University of Arizona in Latin American History with a minor in Cultural Anthropology. Her dissertation was entitled, "We Speak for Ourselves": The First National Congress of Indigenous Peoples and the Politics of Indigenismo in Mexico, 1968-1982." She also co-edited the volume, Men of the People: The Presidencies of Lazaro Cardenas and Luis Echeverria, (University of Arizona Press, 2010). She just finished a chapter titled "De Pie y en Lucha! Indigenous Mobilizations After 1940" for an edited volume as well as a contributor on the encyclopedia project, Native Peoples of the World. Currently she is working on her book manuscript.
Muñoz's research interests include social movements, race, ethnicity, identity construction and nation-state building. She teaches Latin America (colonial and modern surveys), Mexico Since Independence, Race and Nation in Modern Latin America, and Latin American Revolutions, among others.
