City College Downtown: The Succeeders: Immigrants, Education, and Belonging in the United States.
A Book Conversation with Dr. Andrea Flores, moderated by City College Downtown's Associate Professor Dr. Susanna Rosenbaum

Andrea Flores is a cultural anthropologist and assistant professor of education at Brown University. Her research interests primarily center on how education shapes immigrant and immigrant descendants’ sense of self, transitions to adulthood, and social belonging in the United States. In addition to her newly published book The Succeeders: How Immigrant Youth are Transforming what it Means to Belong in America (University of California Press)her work has appeared in American Ethnologist, American Anthropologist, and Law and Policy. 

Susanna Rosenbaum is Associate Professor of Anthropology in the Department of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences and Director of the MA in the Study of the Americas. Her research and teaching center immigration, race, and citizenship; gendered labor and neoliberalism; care work; and the Americas. Her book Domestic Economies: Women, Work, and the American Dream in Los Angeles (Duke University Press 2017) examines how Mexican and Central American domestic workers and their primarily white employers seek to achieve the American Dream. Juxtaposing these two groups, it illustrates how immigrant and native-born women work towards that ideal, how each is indispensable to the other's quest, and the abiding importance of reproductive labor to this pursuit.
