Richard Pfeilstetter, Rufino Acosta Naranjo y Elias Zamora Acosta: Dólares, intereses, dependencia. Teorías académicas y discursos cotidianos de la migración zacatecana (México)


This contribution looks at some of the main explanations of emigration in Zacatecas (Mexico). Particularly we explore three books written by academics from the United States that are representative of this debate for each of the last three decades. Simultaneously, we put these arguments in conversation with discourses related to migration from ordinary people in Zacatecas based on interviews that have been realized between 2009 and 2012 in different villages of Jerez de García Salinas (Zacatecas, México).
