Patricia Baquedano-López examines the intersection of language, race, and immigration in her research and work in schools. A recent strand of her research focuses on indigenous students from Latin America in U.S. public schools. Her current project is funded by a grant from UC MEXUS-CONACyT (with Adriana Cruz-Manjarrez, University of Colima) and centers on return migration, transnational families, and education in the Maya diaspora Yucatan-California.

Many see the Chinese economic miracle as an illustration of an alternative model of development to the neoliberal orthodoxy. It is also assumed that China’s increasing economic and political involvement in the Global South, from its Asia neighbors to countries in faraway developing regions, challenge American domination. In this paper, I argue that China’s export-oriented developmental miracle is in fact a constitutive part of the global neoliberal order, and is made possible by unique conditions difficult to be replicated in other places.
