Emily Erickson’s research examines immigrant experiences of urban America with a focus in the areas of low wage work, urban poverty, and the community effects of the deportation fear.
Her dissertation explores how undocumented immigrants in Los Angeles and Albuquerque overcome the fear of deportation to participate in local and national level political movements. This is a continuation of previous work looking at the effects of deportation fear on community life – including research into the experiences of undocumented students at UCLA.
Emily holds a bachelor’s degree in Latin American history and development sociology from UC Davis and a master’s degree in Latin American Studies from UC San Diego.
