Transborder Media Spaces offers a new perspective on how media forms like photography, video, radio, television, and the Internet have been appropriated by Mexican indigenous people in the light of transnational migration and ethnopolitical movements. In producing and consuming self-determined media genres, actors in Tamazulapam Mixe and its diaspora community in Los Angeles open up media spaces and seek to forge more equal relations both within Mexico and beyond its borders. It is within these spaces that Ayuujk people carve out their own, at times conflicting, visions of development, modernity, gender, and what it means to be indigenous in the twenty-first century.

Ingrid Kummels is Professor of Cultural and Social Anthropology at the Free University Berlin. She has conducted long-term ethnographic research in Mexico, Cuba, Peru and the United States, produced several documentaries and co-edited the volume Photography in Latin America. Images and Identities Across Time and Space (Columbia University Press, 2016).
