Abstract
Dr. Ana Elizabeth Rosas earned her doctorate in history from the University of Southern California, and is the recipient of numerous awards and prizes, among them the Organization of American Historians Huggins Quarles Award and the University of California Irvine's (UCI) Community and Civic Engagement Program's Engaged Faculty Award, Dynamic Woman of the Year Award for Academic Achievement, School of Social Sciences Celebration of Excellence in Teaching Award, and the Inaugural Dean of School of Social Sciences Mentor of the Year Award.

Her historical investigation of the Mexican immigrant family experience in Mexico and the United States has been supported by the Ford Foundation, The Huntington, Smithsonian Institution National Museum of American History, and Stanford University’s Bill Lane Center for the American West.

She has served as chair and member of the American Historical Association’s Committee on Minority Historians, and is currently an elected member of the Council of the Pacific Coast Branch of the American Historical Association.

Her teaching experience includes teaching the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History’s summer seminar on America and Immigrant Life with Dr. Vicki L. Ruiz.

Dr. Rosas recently published Abrazando El Espiritu: Bracero Families Confront the US-Mexico Border (University of California Press, 2014). This is a history of the decisively expansive, formative, and gendered decisions and relationships driving the experience of mid-twentieth century Mexican immigrant families in Mexico and the United States. The Immigration and Ethnic History Society awarded this book their Theodore Saloutos Memorial Book Award.

Throughout her research and teaching at UCI, Dr. Rosas has organized and facilitated countless undergraduate seminars and workshop events, served as faculty advisor to Phi Lambda Rho, and enjoyed advising students investigating the experiences of disenfranchised children, women, and men worldwide.
