Biography: 

Nancy Pérez teaches Chican@/Latinx Lives and Growing Up Chicana/Latino. Her research interests include Mexican and Central American migration, immigrant labor, transnationalism, cultures of resistance, and theoretical perspectives on the body and pain. Her work has examined the domestic worker experience and the ways the occupation has transformed workers’ bodies through time. She has also conducted research on the domestic worker rights movement in the U.S., publishing an article titled “Migrant Domestic Workers and the Changing Landscape of Activism.” More recently, she has written on the embodied memories of first and second-generation youth and their experience accompanying their parents to work for most of their lives.
