Horton on how heat kills

Associate Professor of Anthropology Sarah Horton interviewed migrant  farmworkers about their experiences with heat sickness, and about friends and co-workers who lost their lives to it, for her book, They Leave Their Kidneys in the Fields: Illness, Injury, and Illegality among U.S. Farmworkers (which recently won the AAA’s 2017 Robert B. Textor Prize in Anticipatory Anthropology). Over the summer, Horton organized an academic workshop titled "Migrants and Documents: A View of the Nation-State from Below." Funded by the Wenner Gren Foundation, it brought nine anthropologists, sociologists, and political scientists to campus to discuss the relationship between migrants and documentation.
