Linda HallLinda Jean Hall, a retired Information Technology Engineer, now is an engaged anthropologist dedicated to serving the tangible educational needs of future generations. The first steps towards a new future were taken in 2005 when she traveled to visit friends in Ecuador and began taking classes that led to the completion of a bachelor’s degree in Spanish at UCSB. Concurrently, she collaborated with Savannah Brogdan, a childhood friend, to self-publish a memoir of their life- experiences from 1948-1966 entitled Three Rivers Crossed. In order to achieve the goal to become a professor, Linda completed two MAs at UCSB; one degree in Latin American and Iberian Studies (2010) and another Master’s in Anthropology (2014). Currently, Linda is a Doctoral Candidate (ABD) at the University of California Riverside and her research brings to the forefront for the first time the lived experiences of a previously ignored group; US Ecuadorian migrants of all ethnicities by focusing on the intersection of race, class, and gender as these forces impact their construction of identity and functioning of their community organizations in New York, Los Angeles, and Miami. Linda is both a Mellon Fellowship and research grant recipient and a University of Riverside Dean’s Prestigious Fellow.
