Center of the History of the New America brown-bag discussion series

2120 Francis Scott Key Hall
Wednesday, October 8, 2014 - 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM

Dr. Christina Getrich’s research is focused on the health and well-being of Latino immigrant families and their incorporation into U.S. society. She is particularly interested in how immigration enforcement policies and practices shape the lived experiences of immigrants and their children, as well as how they, in turn, maneuver these constraints as active participants in their communities.

 

Dr. Getrich joined the department in fall 2014 as an assistant professor of anthropology. She received her Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of New Mexico (2008), her M.A. in applied anthropology from Northern Arizona University (2001), and her B.A. in anthropology, with a minor in Spanish, from the College of Wooster (1997).

 

She will be teaching ANTH264: Anthropology and Immigration in the Fall of 2014.  This course will examine the phenomenon of international migration, or immigration.  Students will develop an awareness of how immigration has been framed in the general public and examined by social science disciplines, most prominently anthropology.  Examination of case studies of different immigrant groups in distinct geographic contexts will illuminated the varied incorporation experiences of immigrants in U.S. society.
