Sociology Prof. Silvia Pedraza's
experience immigracing co the Unit-
ed Staesfrom Cuba at12 years old has
provided her with firsthand knowl-
edge of both the subjects she teachen
and researchen at the University.
As part of her work, she approaches
race, ethnicity and immigration from
a sociological perspective.
A University alum and faculty
member since 1988, Pedraza focuses
her research and syllabi on immigra-
tion. A former director of the Uni-
versity's American Culture Latino
Studies Program, Pedraza's current
work is influencedhby her past.
Pedraza's family immigrated to
the United Scates because of the 1959
Cuban Revolution. To describe her
family's situation, she referenced
Melinda Lopez's play, "Sonia Flew."
The play is currently showing at Ann
Arbor's Performance Network The-
atre.

about the 54,000 Cuban children
who came alone. There was a rumor
going around in Havana at the time
of the beginning of the Revolution.
They were going to round up all the
children and send them to study in
the Soviet Union and take them away
from their parents," she explained.
"This play is really aboutcthatedrama."
Although she did not come to the
United States alone, Pedraza said she
was separated from her parents for a
number of years after immigrating.
"Various family, conflicts become
a part of that decision and this is all
very well portrayed in the play," she
said.
Once she arrived in the U.S.,
Pedraza attended a Quaker board-
ingaschool in Maine until she finished
high school. She then decided to
attend the University for her under-
graduate degree and graduated in
1967 with a B.A. in sociology. She
went on to earn her M.A. is teach-

ing from the University as well. She
received her Ph.D. in sociology from
the University of Chicago.
She has received the Excellence
in Education Award twice from the
University and the President and
Provost's Award for Service, among
other awards throughout her career.
As a dual citizen of the United
States and Cuba, Pedraza is able to
return to Cuba using a family reuni-
fication visa. The nature of her work
also requires that she travel back to
conduct interviews. Pedraza esti-
mates that she has traveled there at
least 12 times.
"There is a very strong dissident
movement in Cuba right now. I do
expect that there will be a new demo-
cratic awakening, which is how I like
to think of it," she said. "And when it
comes, I expect that I will be able to
help in some fashion."
