Current Research Projects:
I document the centrality of labor in driving cultural transformations in a new land as well as documenting the politico-historical transformation that give rise to a new working class formation—los yarderos. This research is slated to be published as a book at the University of Illinois Press under the series Latinos in Chicago and the Midwest under the title, “Los Yarderos: Mexican Yard Workers in Neoliberal Chicago” for late Spring 2019.
