Anthropology and Global Studies

Angela Stuesse is an Associate Professor of Anthropology and Global Studies and Director of the Graduate Certificate in Participatory Research at UNC.  She is broadly interested in the causes and consequences of social inequality, with a focus on immigration, race, labor, and the methodologies of activist research. Her first book, Scratching Out a Living: Latinos, Race, and Work in the Deep South, explores how new Latino migration into Mississippi’s poultry industry has impacted communities and prospects for worker organizing. She is currently working on a second book, #FreeDany: Dreaming and Detention in Dixie. Co-authored with its protagonist, Dany Vargas, #FreeDany explores U.S. immigration policy and discourse across the twenty-first century through the life story of one Dreamer and her family.
