Jill Anderson

Otros Dreams en Acción

Jill was born in Utah, raised in Texas, and has lived in Mexico City since 2007. She holds a PhD in English with a specialization in US American and Mexican-American literatures from the University of Texas in Austin (2010). In 2012, she began research with returning and deported young adults with the support of a postdoctoral fellowship at UNAM (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México). Her collaboration with deported and returning youth has led her to work as a scholar and an activist within the nascent transnational movement for the human rights of (im)migrants in the Americas. Jill is co-author with photographer Nin Solis of the book Los Otros Dreamers (2014), and author of articles published by Latino Studies, Norteamérica, Wilson Center-Mexico Institute, and others. Currently she is the director of the non-profit, Otros Dreams en Acción (ODA), which is dedicated to advocacy, support, and empowerment of deported and returning immigrant youth in Mexico.
