Migration Narratives: Diverging Stories in Schools, Churches, and Civic Institutions
“This book offers an ambitious, sociohistorically-informed examination of Mexican migrants' trajectories within an East Coast community, revealed through participant observation in diverse spaces and analyses of narratives told about immigrants in this town. Complex, nuanced and compelling: a must-read for anyone interested in how local histories intersect to shape contemporary experiences of migration.” —Marjorie Faulstich Orellana, Professor of Education and Associate Director of the Center for the Study of International Migration, UCLA, USA
