Judith A. Boruchoff received a PhD in Anthropology from the University of Chicago. Her long-term ethnographic research investigates the constitution of transnational spaces linking Guerrero, Mexico and Chicago, Illinois, USA, analyzing mechanisms through which migrants participate simultaneously in distinct national territories. Her recent scholarship examines political implications of migrant organizations in the U.S., exploring consequences for migrant empowerment, conceptualizations of citizenship, and the nation-state. She is a professor-researcher at the Universidad Autónoma de Guerrero, in Mexico.
