Gwendolyn Ferreti is a social anthropologist working on issues of immigration, race, gender, social movements and the state. She is a PhD candidate at the University of Texas at Austin and a Visiting Scholar at the American Studies Department of the University of Alabama.
Her ethnographic research follows the development and implementation of Alabama's HB 56, an anti-immigrant, Arizona copycat law that promotes "self-deportation" and the Latino immigrant community's response. She is currently in the process of writing her dissertation: “God Bless ‘Em, But They’re a Burden: Latino Immigrant Community Formation, Resistance and State Regulation in the Deep South.”
