Although Mexicans in the United States are a diverse population, this diversity tends to get lost in scholarly work and in the popular press. All too often, our attention is grabbed by the number of Mexicans that enter the country each year or by the “average” characteristics of the group. Filiz Garip helps us consider the diversity in the Mexican migrant stream, which, for more than a century now, has remained stable in its presence, but changed remarkably not only in its composition and origins, but also in its destinations and settlement patterns in the United States. Filiz Garip is associate professor of sociology at Harvard University and the author of the forthcoming book Crossing Paths: The Diversity in Mexico-U.S. Migration. This event is co-sponsored with Columbia University’s Institute of Latin American Studies.
