Jill Anderson was born in Utah, grew up in Texas, and has been living in Mexico City since 2007. She has a PhD in English with a specialization in US American and Mexican-American literatures from the University of Texas in Austin. There, she also taught writing and rhetoric courses and collaborated with the Worker’s Defense Project on behalf of immigrant labor rights. In Mexico City, she served as Co-Director of the Casa de los Amigos, a Quaker guesthouse and center for peace and international understanding. In 2012, she began research with returning and deported young adults with the support of a postdoctoral fellowship at the Universidad Autónoma Nacional de México. Her research with young people working in call centers in Mexico City inspired her to work even more closely as a researcher-activist within the transnational movement for the human rights of (im)migrants in the Americas.
