Rihan Yeh

Junior Professor and Researcher

Colegio de Michoacán

Rihan Yeh teaches at the Centro de Estudios Antropológicos of the Colegio de Michoacán in Mexico; she has published on publics and border control in Tijuana, one of Mexico’s largest cities along its border with the U.S.  Currently, she is finishing a book manuscript on Passing: An Ethnography of Status, Subjectivity and the Public in a Mexican Border City, and beginning research for a second book. Provisionally titled The Vertigo of Velocity, this new project explores the tropes through which different forms of capitalist mobility are experienced in Tijuana.
