Los Otros Dreamers with Jill Anderson in Austin, Texas

  • University of Texas at Austin

 

Jill Anderson presents her new book Los Otros Dreamers on September 28th at the AVAYA Auditorium from 7:30 - 9:00 PM. The event will be preceded by a reception from 6:30 - 7:30 PM in the AVAYA Auditorium lobby.

Los Otros Dreamers is about young people who have been deported or made the decision to return to Mexico due to obstacles faced in the US. The book is partially based off Anderson's postdoctoral research while at the Center for North American Studies-UNAM. The book features 26 testimonios written in the preferred languages of the people (English, Spanish, or Spanglish) and then translated into English or Spanish. Three stories are also translated into indigenous languages. Each story includes a full-page color portrait along with pictures of the families, homes and landscapes these Dreamers are now experiencing.

The presentation will include remarks by Carlos González-Gutiérrez, the Consul General of Mexico in Austin, and commentary by Shannon Speed, Associate Professor of Anthropology and Director of the Native American and Indigenous Studies.

The Avaya Auditorium is located in the Peter O'Donnell, Jr. Building, at 24th and Speedway. Parking is available at the San Jacinto Garage, 2401 San Jacinto, and the Speedway Garage, 105 E. 27th Street.

Where are you from? Where is home for you?

For more and more of us, the answers to these questions only inspire more questions. In this bilingual workshop, we will explore transborder identity, binational/transnational citizenship, and the legal, economic, and socio-cultural gaps between the two. Participants will craft their own border-crossing stories while learning from the testimonios of deported and returning youth in Mexico as featured in the book Los Otros Dreamers by Jill Anderson and Nin Solis.
