MPRC Seminar Series: Katharine Donato
Throughout my career, I have examined many research questions related to migration, especially between Mexico and the United States. These include the consequences of U.S. immigration policy; health consequences of Mexico-U.S. migration; immigrant parent involvement in schools in New York, Chicago, and Nashville; deportation and its effects for immigrants; the great recession and its consequences for Mexican workers; and gender and migration. Recent articles and co-edited special issues have appeared in the International Migration Review and the American Behavioral Scientist. I have a forthcoming book, Gender and International Migration over Four Centuries, being published by the Russell Sage Foundation, about global patterns and shifts in the gender composition of global international migrant populations (with Professor Donna Gabaccia at the University of Toronto). Other work in progress focuses on children; it examines children's cumulative life chances of migrating from Mexico to the United States and shifts in the ways that children and adolescents cross the Mexico-U.S. border.
