Deanna Barenboim is a sociocultural anthropologist and faculty member in the Department of Anthropology at Sarah Lawrence College, where she has taught since 2009. Over the past decade, she has conducted ethnographic research with Maya migrants from Yucatán, Mexico who represent a new wave of Indigenous transnational migration between Latin America and the United States. Prof. Barenboim’s research explores linkages between transborder migration and mobilities, socio-legal inequalities, and emergent forms of political and ethnic identity. She is a recipient of Fulbright fellowships and research funding from the National Science Foundation, U.S. Department of Education, and Ziesing Foundation. Barenboim has been a Visiting Scholar at the Institute of Latin American Studies at Columbia University and the Department of Anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley.
