A Lasting Document: The Enduring Resonance of Emotive Immigration History

April 26, 2018

The Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies is pleased to announce our upcoming event “A Lasting Document: The Enduring Resonance of Emotive Immigration History,” a talk with Ana Rosas, visiting from University of California, Irvine.

Dr. Ana Elizabeth Rosas earned her doctorate in history from the University of Southern California. Dr. Rosas's historical investigation of the Mexican immigrant family experience in Mexico and the United States has been supported by the Ford Foundation, The Huntington, Smithsonian Institution National Museum of American History, and Stanford University’s Bill Lane Center for the American West. Her publications include Abrazando El Espiritu: Bracero Families Confront the US-Mexico Border (University of California Press, 2014). This is a history of the decisively gendered decisions and relationships driving the experience of mid-twentieth century Mexican immigrant families in Mexico and the United States.

Join us for this event on Thursday, April 26 in the McKinney Conference Room at the Watson Institute (111 Thayer St.) at 12 pm.
