Dr. Nadia Flores, now a professor in the Texas A&M Sociology Dept. was herself an undocumented immigrant when she first came to the United States. She now teaches and researches migration patterns between the U.S. and Mexico, and the issues that affect those patterns. http://sociweb.tamu.edu/faculty/flores/
Dr. Flores states that her research has "evolved in four realms which deal mostly with the attempt to develop further the concept of social capital in the area of international migration".
In this interview, we talk to her not only about her research, but also her personal immigration and education story, and we also discuss Mexican cultures and traditions, specifically Mexican retablos.
