Both Sides of the Border: What the Election Means for Latinos/as and Latin Americans

Both Sides of the Border: What the Election Means for Latinos/as and Latin Americans
Faculty from Anthropology, English and Political Science join Stanford students and staff for perspectives on the U.S. election and its implications for Mexico and Latin America, and for the prospects of immigrants living in the U.S. Panel:
Angela Garcia (Anthropology):
Professor Garcia’s work engages historical and institutional processes through which violence and suffering is produced and lived. A central theme is the disproportionate burden of addiction, depression and incarceration among poor families and communities. Her research is oriented toward understanding how attachments, affect, and practices of intimacy are important registers of politics and economy. Professor Garcia is currently engaged in research in Mexico City that examines emerging social and discursive worlds related to the dynamics of extreme urban poverty, mental illness and drug addiction in Mexico City, particularly within its peripheral zones.
