About our guest:
Tanya Golash-Boza’s (Professor of Sociology, University of California Merced) recently published book, Deported: Immigrant Policing, Disposable Labor and Global Capitalism (New York University Press; awarded the Distinguished Contribution to Research Book Award from the Latino/a Studies Section of the American Sociological Association), explains mass deportation as the result of concurrent trends toward outsourcing and higher demand for unskilled jobs, which produces deindustrialization, decline in urban communities, and, consequently, heavy policing and incarceration of racial minorities. Her work features challenges Latinos face each and everyday, but she connects them with issues generated by racial, gender, and socioeconomic marginalization. Her work, while national and even global in scale, directly applies to current Texas political, economic, and social issues including immigration and deportation, economic and employment trends, and social and political reactions.
