SIMONE DELERME is McMullan Associate Professor of Southern Studies and Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Mississippi. Delerme completed a M.A. in liberal arts at the University of Delaware in 2005, and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Anthropology from Rutgers University. Delerme's research focuses on Latino migration to the South, and the social class distinctions and racialization processes that create divergent experiences in Southern spaces and places. Her new ethnographic research project examines Latino migration to Memphis, Tennessee and North Mississippi.
