Jonathan Xavier Inda is an associate professor of Anthropology at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign.

Career

Inda attended Stanford University in the late 1980s. In 1990 he graduated with a Bachelors of Arts degree in public policy, a program at Stanford University which attempts to help their students in evaluating public policy options and outcomes.

In 1991 Inda earned his masters from the University of California, Berkeley with a Master of Arts in Anthropology. Six years later, in 1997, Inda received his Ph.D., also in Anthropology, and also from the University of California, Berkeley.

Research and contributions

Inda's research mainly focuses on the anthropology of globalization (or cultural globalization) and the politics of immigration.

His most highly cited work, The Anthropology of Globalization. http://books.google.com/books?id=JR627XLHWKQC. , an edited volume that he collaborated on with poet and fellow anthropologist Renato Rosaldo, describes the cultural dynamics of globalization.[1][2][3][4]

Through his book Targeting Immigrants: Government, Technology, and Ethics. http://books.google.com/books?id=Szl1w6kqrFcC&printsec=frontcover.  Inda proposed that illegal immigrants have become targets of the government due to certain mentalities and intellectual machineries, and explores the specific tactics, techniques, and programs that have been deployed to manage illegal immigrants, such as Operation Gatekeeper.

His research into cultural globalization in he Anthropology of Globalization raises the theories of customization and deterritorialization. These concepts posit that, rather than a one-way flow of cultural imperialism, cultural globalization consists also of cultural counter-flows and cultural re-appropriations in a negotiated back-and-forth.[5][6][7]

Teaching history

After receiving his Doctorate he went to work at the University of California, Santa Barbara.  There he worked as an Affiliated Assistant Professor, Department of Anthropology, Global Studies Program, and Program in Latin American and Iberian Studies as well as Assistant Professor, Department of Chicana/o Studies.  He held both positions from July 1, 1998 to June 30, 2005.

After 7 years as an assistant professor, Inda was hired as an Affiliated Associate Professor, Department of Anthropology, Global Studies Program, and Program in Latin American and Iberian Studies. He also worked as an Affiliated Professor, Department of Chicana/o Studies. He started both positions in 2005. In 2006 he started teaching at the University of Illinois as a Visiting Associate Professor, Latina/Latino Studies Program. He held both positions at the University of California, Santa Barbara and the position at the University of Illinois until 2007.

In 2007, Inda became an Associate Professor, Latina/Latino Studies Program at the University of Illinois, and now continues to hold that position.
