For women of the Zapotec community of Santa Ana Zegache, discussing migration presents gender specific dilemmas. In this presentation, Iván Sandoval Cervantes provides an historical analysis of the different migration movements in which women from Santa Ana Zegache have participated: Zegacheñas have migrated to Mexico City, to the United States, and to Oaxaca City. He also explores how the constraints that women face before, during, and after migrating are different from those faced by men.
Iván Sandoval Cervantes, a PhD candidate in the UO Department of Anthropology, received a 2014-15 CSWS Graduate Student Research Grant in support of his project, “Gender, Migrations, and Relatedness: Care and Kinship in a Zapotec Transborder Community.” He is the 2015-16 CSWS Jane Grant Dissertation Fellowship awardee.
