Book Description

In her timely new book, Teresa M. Mares explores the intersections of structural vulnerability and food insecurity experienced by migrant farmworkers in the northeastern borderlands of the United States. Through ethnographic portraits of Latinx farmworkers who labor in Vermont's dairy industry, Mares powerfully illuminates the complex and resilient ways workers sustain themselves and their families while also serving as the backbone of the state's agricultural economy. In doing so, Life on the Other Border exposes how broader movements for food justice and labor rights play out in the agricultural sector, and powerfully points to the misaligned agriculture and immigration policies impacting our food system today.

Author Bio

Teresa Mares is an Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Vermont and is affiliated with the Transdisciplinary Research Initiative in Food Systems. She received her B.A. (Summa Cum Laude) in Anthropology and Foreign Languages and Literatures with a concentration in Spanish from Colorado State University (2002), and her M.A. (2005) and Ph.D. (2010) in Sociocultural Anthropology from the University of Washington. She also completed a graduate certificate in Women Studies at the University of Washington.

Dr. Mares’ research focuses on the intersection of food and migration studies, and she is particularly interested in the ways that the diets and foodways of Latino/a immigrants change as a result of migration. Analytically, Dr. Mares engages with theories and concepts of citizenship and borders, identity and foodways, and contemporary social movements. She is committed to applied, community-based ethnographic methodologies and is currently studying food access and food security among Latino/a dairy workers in Vermont. Based on this research, she is writing a book entitled The Other Border: Sustaining Farmworkers in the Dairy Industry,” under contract with University of California Press.

Recent publications include, “Eating Far From Home: Latino/a Workers and Food Access in Rural Vermont,” (co-written with Naomi Wolcott-MacCausland and Jessie Mazar) forthcoming in Food Across Borders: Production, Consumption, and Boundary Crossing in North America, “Navigating Diverse Relationships to Local Food in a Supposedly Homogenous Place,” forthcoming in Food and Foodways, “Workplace Democracy and Civic Engagement in Vermont Food Cooperatives,” (co-written with Cecile Reuge) in Working USA, The Journal of Labor and Society, and "Another Time of Hunger" in the edited volume Women Redefining the Experience of Food Insecurity.
