Ana Raquel Minian
Associate Professor of History, Stanford University

Ana Raquel Minian is an associate professor of history at Stanford University who studies Latin America and immigration. Her acclaimed 2018 book, Undocumented Lives: The Untold Story of Mexican Migration, draws upon letters, songs, and oral accounts to describe how Mexican male immigrants in the U.S. in the late 20th century found themselves caught between Mexico and the United States, building ties to communities on both sides of the border while not feeling welcome in either country. Dr. Minian's  Carnegie project will examine U.S efforts to restrict immigration from Latin America. She is also working on a history of immigration detention in the U.S.
