Biography: Linda 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 a Ph.D. in Cultural Anthropology at UCR, two MAs at UCSB; one degree in Latin American and Iberian Studies (2010) and another Master’s in Anthropology (2014). Currently, Linda is a lecturer at UCLA in Chicana/o Studies and a part-time researcher. She specializes in bringing to the forefront the lived experiences of Afro and Latino diasporic and previously ignored groups. Her area of specialization is the immigration of US Ecuadorian migrants of all ethnicities to the U.S.
