Overview

Andrea Flores is a cultural anthropologist who specializes in the anthropology of education. Her research interests primarily center on how education shapes immigrant and immigrant descendants’ sense of self, transitions to adulthood, and social belonging.  Her current book project identifies how Latino youth who participated in a college readiness program in Nashville, Tennessee conceptualized the value of higher education for themselves, their families, and their communities in light of nativist hostility.
