Tanya’s most recent work is on the consequences of mass deportation. With funding from a Fulbright-Hays Faculty Research Abroad Award, she completed over 150 interviews with deportees in Brazil, Guatemala, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic in 2009 and 2010. This research forms the basis of her book manuscript, Deported, which she is currently writing.
Prior to working at the University of California, Tanya worked at the University of Kansas. She lives in Merced, California with her husband and three school-age children. She has lived in Latin America, Europe and the Caribbean, and speaks fluent English, Spanish, Portuguese, and French.Tanya Golash-Boza’s personal website Follow Tanya Golash-Boza on Twitter Official Race and Racisms Facebook Page
