Mira received her B.A. in Anthropology and Latin American Studies with a minor in Hispanic Studies from Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota in 2010. While an undergraduate, Mira conducted ethnographic field research in Cochabamba, Bolivia, which served as a basis for theses, ‘€œChanging the Politics of Citizenship: Intercultural Education in Bolivia and Peru‘€ and ‘€œTeaching the Nation in and against the State: The Ambiguous Position of Bolivian Teachers in Education.‘€ Mira spent a year teaching in a public school in southern Spain, and since then has managed the direct-service citizenship program of the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition.

Originally from New England, Mira has traveled and studied in countries throughout Latin America. At the Stone Center, Mira pursued her M.A. with research interests in the performance of identity, historiography, oral narratives, race and ethnicity, and collective remembering. Mira is currently pursuing a doctorate in history at Tulane University.
