Behold, my potential area of study. I’m trying to find time to research the specific laws in each area, but for now I was thinking I would focus on the migrant and farm worker communities of Arvin and Delano.
I feel like I will have to make a distinction between migrant workers and farm workers because in the Arvin area there are year-round crops, meaning families will stay in one place, not typically migrating. I’m thinking that I can use subjects from both areas to compare and contrast experiences.
I really need to get out there, get contacts and get rolling.
I’m hoping I can get out to Delano soon, but I’m thinking this weekend is devoted to Arvin though.
As a reminder, my MA topic is childhood development in migrant and agriculture heavy areas.
