Meet Professor Roberto de Anda

Professor de Anda received a BA in Chicano Studies at the University of California at Berkeley. After doing graduate work in Latin American studies at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), he earned a Ph.D. in sociology and bilingual education at the University of Arizona.  He has recently published papers on labor market inequality among men and women of Mexican descent, socioeconomic incorporation of immigrants, and Ernesto Galarza’s contributions to the study of braceros and children’s literature. He has also edited two editions of his book Chicanas & Chicanos in Contemporary Society.
