Norma Fuentes-Mayorga is currently a visiting fellow at the Center for Migration and Development at Princeton University.  Before this she was an assistant professor at Fordham University’s Department of Sociology and Anthropology and also a visiting Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the University of Amsterdam.  Her Postdoctoral research examines the educational mobility of Latina and North-African immigrant girls in Amsterdam and New York City. Her current research examines how recent cohorts of Dominican and Mexican immigrant women find work in New York’s informal, service sectors and how gender, race and immigrant status affect the sorting and work functions of workers.  She has authored a number of articles and chapters on the immigrant and work integration as well as racialization of Dominican and Mexican workers in New York City and is currently completing her first book tentatively titled, “When Women Come First: immigration, gender, race and boundary crossing.”
