Lilia Soto

Join us at UMOS at 2701 S. Chase Street on October 11 at 6:00pm for a conversation with Lilia Soto, Associate Professor in Latina/o Studies and American Studies at the University of Wyoming, who will discuss her recently published book, Girlhood in the Borderlands: Mexican Teens Caught in the Crossroads of Migration.

Dr. Soto will be discussing her research on the lives of Mexican American girls on both sides of the border: how they are affected by separation from family members as well as patterns of migration and immigration enforcement.
