Mexican-American and ethnic histories in 20th century United States history

Ivonne Gonzalez, originally from Los Angeles, CA, graduated from Yale in 2016 with a B.A. degree in Ethnicity, Race, and Migration. During her time at Yale, Ivonne was a Mellon Mays Undergraduate fellow and worked on independent research projects that focused on Mexican-American and ethnic histories in 20th century United States history. Ivonne’s research during her year-long Fox Fellowship stay at Colegio de México will examine the social and political histories of indigenous migrant women in Mexico city and their access to transportation and resources, as well as the history of racial discourse in Mexico from the 20th century to the present. She plans to pursue a Ph.D. in either American Studies, Anthropology, or a related interdisciplinary program. In her free time, Ivonne enjoys visiting museums in México City, running, and writing and playing music on the guitar.
