“Examining Cross-Border Partnerships Through Critical Feminist Ethnography”
With the assistance of young Mexican woman, Anay Palomeque de Carrillo, Dr. Elaine Hampton, a retired Associate Professor of Education at the University of Texas at El Paso, provides an in-depth exploration of education in an era of dramatic social and economic upheaval in rural and urban Mexico in the city of Juarez.
This critical ethnographic case study presents Anay’s experiences in a series of narrative essays addressing the economic, social, and political context of her world. This young Mexican woman leads us through Ciudad Juárez in its most violent years, into women’s experiences in the factories, around family and religious commitments as well as personal illness, and on to her achievement of an education through perseverance and creativity.
Elaine Hampton is a retired Associate Professor of Education at the University of Texas at El Paso. She was an award-winning teacher in communities near the Mexican border and is a researcher in the fields of Mexican and Mexican-American education.
Co-sponsored by the Texas Center for Educational Policy (TCEP), the Cultural Studies in Education Program (Department of Curriculum and Instruction), and the Center for Mexican American Studies.
