The Latino Factor in the United States has taken center stage as people of Latin American and Caribbean descent increasingly play vital roles in national elections, consumer society, and popular entertainment. But the growing political, economic, and cultural power of Latinos in the United States is only one side of the story. Why did Latinos come to the United States in the first place? How did they get here? Where are they from? The UConn Migration Studies Seminar in Oaxaca, Mexico explores these questions through collaboration and interaction with migrants themselves in their home country.
