UO Today #691 guest: Kristin Yarris

Kristin Yarris is an assistant professor of International Studies and the director of the Global Health minor at the University of Oregon. She discusses her book Care Across Generations: Solidarity and Sacrifice in Transnational Families which examines the dynamics of care that result when Nicaraguan mothers migrate for work, leaving their own mothers responsible for their children. Yarris also talks about teaming up with UO English professor Mary Wood to teach an interdisciplinary course called “Mind, Madness, and Society: Schizophrenia Across Cultures and Genres.” Finally, Yarris describes the new minor in Global Health which launched in Fall 2017.
