Student, Professor Write Three-Piece Series for Tribune

Ian Lim Bonner ’14 and Associate Professor of Political Science Shannan Mattiace contributed three pieces to an Ernst Field Series in the Meadville Tribune. Ian wrote the first two articles, “Manual labor in the seed fields brings unexpected rewards” and “Labor Relations: Migrants work hard and face stereotypes,” which were published on January 9 and 10. Mattiace’s article, published on January 11, was titled “Moving for Work: Seasonal workers vital to Ernst Conservation Seeds.”

Ian, a student in Mattiace’s Latin American Politics class, learned about the sacrifices migrant workers make to provide for their families. He says he chose to write the series to change the disconnect he felt between the Hispanic workers and the Meadville community.
