Hilary Parsons Dick is an Associate Professor of International Studies at Arcadia University. She completed her Ph.D. in cultural and linguistic anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania. She investigates Mexico-U.S. migration from the perspectives of discourse analysis; the political economies of language; and gender, class, and ethno-racial relations. Her new research project concerns the criminalization of Mexican migrants and racializing discourses of sovereignty in anti-immigrant ordinances in small Pennsylvania towns. Dr. Dick's ethnographic research is located in Guanajuato, Mexico and Pennsylvania.
