Dr. Aurora Chang's presentation argues that undocumented students' quest to achieve academically simulaneously cultivates an empowering self-identity while forcing them to involuntarily perform the role of infallible non-citizen citizen. Her book, The Struggles of Identity, Education, and Agency in the Lives of Undocumented Students, weaves together two distinct and powerfully related sources of knowledge: (1) her journey/transition from a once undocumented immigrant from Guatemala to a hyperdocumented academic, and (2) five years of ongoing national research on the identity, education, and agency of undocumented college students (Chang, 2014, 2015, 2016).
