This talk will sketch a 20-year (and counting) project looking at children in Mexican schools who were previously in the United States. Noting that many of those children were US citizens and talked actively about when they would be in the US again (of times reconnecting with family already there), it became clear that for many ‘home’ was both Mexico and the United States. Phrased another way, the societies that they were coming of age in were both the US and Mexico.
This talk explores the role of schooling in California for subsequent schooling and/or adulthood in Mexico (and the United States) and the role of schooling in Mexico for subsequent schooling and/or adulthood in the United States (and Mexico).
