dc.description.abstractMigration appears to be a straightforward act of people moving to a new geographic location, but upon further exploration, it is a complex performance with multiple actors across space. Transnationalism is an aspect of migration that refers to the cultural, social, economic, and political links migrants maintain with their home country across national borders. Foodscapes are the lens to describe the transnational behavior of Mexican migrants to Colorado Springs, Colorado. Foodscapes are places and spaces where one acquires, prepares, eats, and shares food, and gathers meaning from food. This qualitative study involves multi-sited participant observations where Mexican foodstuffs are sold and consumed and individual interviews with twenty-six Mexican migrants. This study demonstrates how these Mexican migrants maintain strong transnational links to Mexico through their foodscapes, even after decades of residence in the U.S and Colorado Springs.
