Transnationalism: How Moving Across Borders Affects Families (Rebroadcast)
Transnationalism: How Moving Across Borders Affects Families (Rebroadcast)

Listen
AIR DATE: July 16, 2012

What happens when you cross borders and live between two different worlds?  That's what UNR professor Debbie Boehm explores in her work.  She's researched how the migration and deportation of Mexicans has affected their families and their communities in Mexico and America.  So how does continually crossing borders affect one's family, and one's sense of identity?  How does transnationalism in Nevada affect a person's psyche?  We talk with Debbie Boehm, a reporter who traveled with Guatemalan deportees, a law professor who studied kids whose parents were deported, and a woman fighting to keep her father from being deported. (Original broadcast 9/23/11.)
 
GUESTS
Debbie Boehm, Asst Anthropology Prof, UNR
Astrid Silva, activist and daughter of potential deportee
Nina Rabin, Associate Law Prof  and Dir of Bacon Immigration Law and Policy Program, The University of Arizona Rogers College of Law
