Ramon Garibaldo Valdez is a Ph.D. Candidate working on issues around social movements, immigration, and ethnographic methods. His research looks at the ways that immigrant communities in the U.S. actively resist – both through political mobilization and every-day defiance – the marginalizing experiences produced by the U.S. immigration policy regime. Taking an ethnographic approach, his work disrupts common treatments of immigration policy and academic research by centering the voices of unauthorized migrants.
