The Kent Family Speaker Series Presents:
Borders of Belonging: Mixed Status Families in the Wake of the COVID-19 Pandemic
Heide Castaneda, Ph.D.
Professor, Department of Anthropology
University of South Florida
Immigration policies and practices affect not only undocumented migrants, but also their family members, some of whom are legal residents and U.S. citizens.
This presentation will discuss the trauma, distress, and inequalities that occur daily, alongside the stratification of particular family members’ access to resources like education, employment and health care. However, it also offers up examples of resilience, resistance and solidarity between parents and children, siblings and within the community. It explores the effects of the recent COVID-19 pandemic on mixed-status families and, more generally, on immigrant communities in the U.S.
