My research explores the intersections of rural infrastructure and agricultural industrialization policy, statist and popular ideologies of modernity, racialized and criminalized discourses of mobility, and transnational Mexican migration in postwar Mexico and the United States. The title of my dissertation is "Driving Mexican Migration: Constructing Technologies and Mythologies of Mobility, 1940-1964."
