Argenis Hurtado Moreno

Predoctoral Trainee in Anthropology
Argenis Hurtado Moreno

Argenis is a scholar-activist who focuses his anthropological inquiries on topics of migration, gender, race, kinship, social movements, and media. He wrote his thesis for Oregon State University's Applied Anthropology program based on ethnographic research conducted with immigrant mothers in the US. This multimodal-multisensory ethnography explores the relationship between undocumented mothers and their model-immigrant children, including how US immigration policies influence their everyday decisions -- he hopes to expand on this subject.
