Andrea Gómez Cervantes
Advisor(s): Cecilia Menjívar
Participation Year: 2016-17
Andrea's research interests lay on immigration, immigrant families, race/ethnicity, skin color, and globalization. More specifically, her previous work ranges from Latinas in higher education, immigrants' skin color and employment opportunities, and transnational motherhood. In her dissertation, entitled: "Mixed-Status Immigrant Families: Social Inequality and Agency in Family, Identity and Community," she investigates how structural inequalities of race, gender, and class affect mixed-status immigrant families (those with members that have diverse legal statuses in the same family) and how individuals face and negotiate these inequalities.
