Soren Peterson

Doctoral Student

I am a bilingual (Spanish/English) international educator and applied anthropologist with academic interests in transnational migration, tourism, and the cultural anthropology and human geography of Latin America and the Caribbean. My domain of practice is undocumented immigration and access to higher education. I earned a Master of Arts in anthropology from the University of Denver, where I used the anthropology of tourism and acculturation as theoretical frameworks for conducting ethnographic research on the sociocultural and economic impacts of education abroad programs on host families in Cuenca, Ecuador.
