SCRATCHING OUT A LIVING
Latinos, Race, and Work in the Deep South

When Latin Americans began arriving to work in Central Mississippi’s poultry plants, local people didn’t quite know what to make of them. It was the late 1990s when they first became visible in checkout lines at grocery stores and walking along the side of the road. “All of a sudden they were everywhere, walking on the streets, speaking a language we couldn’t understand,” noted a forty-something African American plant worker. This presentation considers the processes through which a diversity of Latin Americans from across the continent have become racialized as “Hispanic” in Mississippi’s poultry communities and how they fit into and upset the existing racial hierarchies of the region.
This roundtable, sponsored by the Latino/a Studies Section of the Latin American Studies Association, celebrates the newest research in the field of Latino/a Studies. Recently public authors will share their cutting-edge research and their personal experience in their paths to publication in a lively, informal conversation about research, publishing and teaching while Latinx.
Angela Stuesse, author of Scratching Out a Living: Latinos, Race, and Work in the Deep South, will be the Keynote Speaker at the Labor Studies Working Group 10th Decade Project Graduate Research Symposium.
How has Latino immigration transformed the rural South? In what ways has the presence of these newcomers complicated efforts to organize for workplace justice? Based on six years of engagement with a poultry workers’ center in Mississippi, this talk discusses the story of how Black, white, and new Latino southerners have lived and understood these transformations in the chicken plants and surrounding communities, and calls for organizing strategies that bring diverse working communities together.
This roundtable will bring three authors into dialogue about their recently published books to discuss how the politics of citizenship shape the lives of migrants and Mexicanos in the United States, how these politics are racialized and gendered, and what their work suggests in terms of possibilities for social and/or political change.
Immigration and refugee policy has reached a global crisis. More people are compelled to cross borders than ever in our planet’s history, and many are entering communities hostile to their presence. Moreover, the role of nations and states in providing for economic and political refugees is an increasingly contentious topic the world over. At the dawn of a new presidential administration, we reflect on these concerns. Join us for a day of roundtable dialogue with researchers, community practitioners, and policymakers working on key topics of immigration policy reform and refugee resettlement and services.
Panel discussion with audience participation, featuring Scott C. Phillips (North Carolina Field Office Director, US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants); Felix B. Ioyoko (Founder and President of Raleigh Immigrant Community); Dani Moore (Director, Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project for the NC Justice Center); and Dr. Angela Stuesse, Moderator (Assistant Professor, Anthropology and Global Studies, UNC-Chapel Hill)
Desde el pensamiento crítico de los movimientos sociales: ¿Cómo hacer investigación hacia la descolonización y en colabor?
What are the connections between the #BlackLivesMatter movement and Black liberation struggles in Brazil? What can labor activists learn from the experiences of Latino/a immigrants and labor struggles in the U.S. South? What’s the significance of the permanent infrastructure of nearly 1,000 U.S. military bases overseas to the anti-war movement?
Rep. Kathy Sykes, MS House District 70, is bringing together present and former poultry workers, faith leaders, legislators, and the community to discuss issues affecting workers in the multi-billion dollar poultry industry. Invited speakers include author, Dr. Angela Stuesse.
Activist anthropologist Angela Stuesse discusses her new book Scratching Out a Living and takes the audience deep into Mississippi's chicken-processing plants and communities, where large numbers of Latin American migrants were recruited in the mid-1990s to labor alongside an established African American workforce in some of the most dangerous and lowest-paid jobs in the country.
