I am a third year doctoral student studying cultural anthropology working under Dr. Ann Kingsolver and Dr. Carmen Martinez Novo. For my dissertation, I am researching transnationalism, translocal rural livelihoods and binational family practices. I try to look at intersections between im/migraiton, agricultural production and transnational family practices, operating within our global food system. I work with binaitonal Mexican-American families who reside in the foothills of the Appalachian South and the foothills of the Bajio in west-central Mexico. At this point, my research interests cover: transnationalism, identity, cultural politics of migration, political economy, agrarian change, temporality, translocal work and social practices.
