Cynthia Mendoza Ríos
Professor of Economics, Universidad de Los Andes
The Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics would like to invite you to a special Thursday edition of their Development Workshop.
In her talk, Cynthia Mendoza Ríos presents a general landscape of the itinerant schooling experiences of children migrating between Michoacán, Mexico, and California. It is based on results from a multi-sited research project centered on children’s own narratives about their schooling experiences. The project focuses on a diverse group of 13- to 15-year old, US- and Mexican-born, documented migrant children, who spend five months in small rural hamlets in the municipality of Tangancícuaro, Michoacán, and seven months in a migrant camp in Watsonville, California, where their parents toil as seasonal agricultural workers.
This talk is presented by the UC Davis Hemispheric Institute on the Americas.
