MIGRATION AND INDIGENOUS PEOPLES (focus on Bolivians and Mexicans)

 

There is little written about indigenous Bolivians in Argentina, and none of it is in English, so while the class will focus on the experiences of both indigenous Bolivians and Mexicans, the reading is oriented to the case of Mexicans in the US. In talking about these two migrant situations, I will be seeking to develop insights that can help us in understanding the situation of any transnational indigenous population. 

 

* One of the best accounts of the fluid nature of indigenous immigrants' identities is: Transnational Oaxacan indigenous identity: The Case of Mixtecs and Zapotecs, in Identities: Global Studies in Culture and Power, 7:2, 173-195, by Michael Kearney (2000)
