The Department of Chicano/Latino Studies
“Family Formation in the Shadows: The Social Incorporation of Undocumented Young Adults”
with Laura Enriquez, Graduate Student, Department of Sociology, UCLA

Friday, January 24, 2014
11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
Social Science Tower, Room 318 (Jeff Garcilazo Conference Room)

Enriquez is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Sociology at the University of California, Los Angeles. Her research focuses on the educational, economic, political, and social experiences of undocumented immigrant young adults who arrived in the U.S. as children. Her work contributes to theoretical understandings of immigrant incorporation – how individuals become part of or are excluded from U.S. society. Studying various aspects of immigrant incorporation has also encouraged her to engage multiple areas of inquiry and contribute to theories of social movements, education, race, and gender. More generally, she sheds light on how exclusion is (re)produced, and also challenged, through legal, economic, political, social, and cultural means.
