Congratulations to Assistant Professor Ana Raquel Minian
Ana Raquel Minian's thesis, Undocumented Lives, won the 2012 Henry Gabriel Prize from the American Studies Association for the best dissertation of the year in the field of American Studies.
Assistant Professor Ana Raquel Minian joined Stanford's Department of History in 2012 as an Assistant Professor of History and Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity Professor Minian's current book project explores the late-twentieth-century history of Mexican undocumented migration to the United States, the growth of migrant communities, and bi-national efforts to regulate the border. It uses over two hundred oral history interviews, government archives, migrant correspondence, privately held organizational records and personal collections, pamphlets and unpublished ephemera, and newspapers and magazines collected in Washington D.C., Chicago, the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, Michoacán, Zacatecas, and Mexico City. As the first sustained history of transnational Mexican migration from 1965 to 1986, this work addresses audiences interested in U.S. and Latin American political history, Latina/o history, and Migration Studies. Minian is also working on a project on the United Farm Workers (UFW) union.
