Frans J. Schryer

Professor Emeritus, Department of Sociology and Anthropology, University of Guelph

I have a solid track record for scholarly output on Mexico. My first book, “The Rancheros of Pisaflores”, which was translated into Spanish, has been extensively cited, particularly by historians. My second book, “Ethnicity and Class Conflict in Rural Mexico,” won the Erminie Wheeler-Voegelin Award (for best book-length work in ethnohistory), granted by the American Society for Ethnohistory. My last book, entitled "They Never Come Back (A Story of Undocumented Workers from Mexico) was my first book geared to a broader readership (as an example of Public Anthropology). I am currently finishing the research and writing for a book on a Nahuatl-speaking town in Guerrero, Mexico (a history and ethnography).
