Recent Publications: Crocker in Anthropology News

Rebecca Crocker (Ph.D. Arizona, 2016) has published a commentary in Anthropology News in collaboration with the Todo Tucson City ID Campaign arguing that a lack of valid US identification poses both direct and indirect health threats in the undocumented immigrant community in Tucson. The article provides historical background to the municipal ID movement in the US, which has spread in response to the lack of federal movement on comprehensive immigration reform. The authors call on anthropologists to conduct research that would be relevant to communities working toward enhancing local residency and civic inclusivity for all their members.
