Mothering from afar

What happens to families when Mexican mothers migrate to the U.S. in search of jobs and opportunities and leave their children behind? In her new book, Boston College Lynch School of Education Assistant Professor Gabrielle Oliveira offers a perspective on the consequences of maternal migration, based on more than three years of ethnographic research. Motherhood across Borders: Immigrants and Their Children in Mexico and New York (NYU Press, 2018) provides insights on the far-reaching effects on both the children who accompanied their mothers to the U.S., and those who remain in Mexico.
