Larisa Veloz
Assistant Professor, History

I study the movement of people across borders. I focus specifically on Mexican migration to and from the United States throughout the twentieth century. I examine how families lived in multiple landscapes and forged binational livelihoods. I’m also interested in the construction of real geographic borders as well as conceptual and cultural borders. I have expertise in the histories of the United States, Mexico and Latin America, and am generally interested in the movement of people throughout Latin America. Family, women and gender lay at the heart of my investigations, as I seek to illustrate how migrations impact, divide, and reconstitute families. I’m committed to bringing insights from my research to a wider audience, whether in the classroom or in the community. I aim to show that migrants, sometimes at the margins of their countries and at the periphery of State visions, have a history of their own. The history of migrants and migration across the US-Mexico border and throughout the borderlands reveals insights about the relationship between migrants and their families, and States and their citizens.
