Lilia Soto, Assistant Professor

B.A. Ethnic Studies and Latin American Studies, University of California San Diego

Ph.D. Comparative Ethnic Studies, University of California Berkeley

Lilia Soto received her Ph.D. in Comparative Ethnic Studies from the University of California, Berkeley.  She completed her undergraduate degree at UC San Diego in Ethnic Studies and Latin American Studies.  Before coming to the University of Wyoming and joining the American Studies and Chicano Studies Programs, she was a University of California President’s Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California, Los Angeles in the César E. Chávez Department of Chicana/o Studies.  She has also taught at UC Santa Barbara in the Feminist Studies Department.

Soto’s research and teaching interest is centered at the intersections of gender, age, time, and migration.  She is currently working on her book manuscript titled, Reading Between the Vines: Muchachas Michoacans in California’s Napa Valley, where age and gender intersect in peculiar ways and dictates the journey north for teenage girls.  Their migrant journeys provide insights into the complex lives of migrant families.  Her next project is a study of contemporary race relations in the Napa Valley.   At the University of Wyoming, she teaches courses such as American Cultural Diversity, U.S. Women of Color, and Women, Gender and Migration.
