Description - Migration, Mujercitas, and Medicine Men by Valentina Napolitano

Valentina Napolitano explores issues of migration, medicine, religion, and gender in this analysis of everyday practices of urban living in Guadalajara, Mexico. Drawing on fieldwork over a ten-year period, Napolitano paints a vibrant picture of daily life in a low-income neighbourhood of Guadalajara. "Migration, Mujercitas, and Medicine Men" portrays the personal experiences of the neighbourhood's residents while engaging with important questions about the nature of selfhood, subjectivity, and community identity, as well as the tensions of modernity and its discontents in Mexican society.
