Source: New study delves into state approaches to immigration | Around the O

Daniel Tichenor, a UO political science professor and CLLAS faculty affiliate, is engaged in a “States of Immigration” study with professors Robin Dale Jacobson from the University of Puget Sound and Elizabeth Durden of Bucknell University. The researchers were recently awarded a $200,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to help them pursue this research over the next two years.

“Their project is unusual in its in-depth analysis of how attitudes, laws and experiences differ across states, especially in states that are not the typical receiving grounds for immigrants, like Texas, California and New York. Instead, their research will examine two pairs of neighboring states — Arizona and New Mexico, and Virginia and Maryland — that have markedly different immigration laws and policies.

“‘The states with the highest immigrant populations tend to inform many people’s views on this hot-button issue,’ Tichenor said. ‘Examining pairs of states that are less studied and have strikingly different attitudes on immigration should give us a deeper understanding of the historical and contemporary challenges surrounding immigrant integration.’”

Directed by Lynn Stephen, Distinguished Professor of Anthropology and Ethnic Studies at the University of Oregon and co-director of the Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies (CLLAS). Produced by Sonia De La Cruz and Lynn Stephen.

Sad Happiness: Cinthya’s Transborder Journey explores the differential rights that U.S. citizen children and their undocumented parents have through the story of one extended Zapotec family. Shot in Oregon and Oaxaca, Mexico, and narrated by 11-year old Cinthya, the film follows Cinthya’s trip to her parent’s home community of Teotitlán del Valle with her godmother, anthropologist Lynn Stephen. There she meets her extended family and discovers her indigenous Zapotec and Mexican roots. While in Oaxaca, she participates in her community’s annual celebration of their patron saint, learns how to make chocolate and spin wool, explores a Zapotec archaeological site, and shares in a family party where she dances with her great-grandmother. Her absent parents are omnipresent on the trip as Cinthya’s cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents and great-grandparents all talk to her about them and how they wish for their return. › Continue reading
