Andrew Mitchel

Andrew Mitchel is a PhD student in Cultural Anthropology at Ohio State University. He received his BA from the University of Michigan in Anthropology and Spanish, and his MA in Latin American Studies from the University of California, Los Angeles. His MA thesis concerned the Dominican academy system run by Major League Baseball, to which young Latin American baseball players are recruited and signed at sixteen years old in their first step toward potential major league stardom. His current dissertation plan is to study Latinx foodways around the Midwest. He will study how food traditions, as well as jobs in food service and food production, play into livelihoods for Latinx folks in this part of the country. @mitchel_andrew
