CLLAS Visiting Scholar Presentation

Anabel Lopez-Salinas is a native of Oaxaca, Mexico. She holds a master’s degree in regional and technological development from the Instituto Tecnológico de Oaxaca. Her focus was on economic development and migration between the United States and the Mixteca, the poorest region of Oaxaca and the birthplace of her parents. In 2010 Anabel came to Oregon to pursue a PhD in public affairs and policy at Portland State University. Since her arrival, she has worked and volunteered with the Latino immigrant community in Oregon and served as board secretary of the Beaverton Hispanic Center. While working on her dissertation, entitled “Exploring Transnational Economic, Social, and Political Participation of Mexican Immigrants in Oregon,” she has interviewed immigrants and public officials on the economic, political, and social incorporation of immigrants in Oregon. While at the University of Oregon, she will help coordinate the CLLAS Latino Civic Participation Project (LCPP).
