Kristy Nabhan-Warren, Professor and V.O. and Elizabeth Kahl Figge Chair in Catholic Studies at the University of Iowa, spent years interviewing Iowans who work in the meatpacking industry, both native-born residents and recent migrants from Latin America, Africa, and Asia. Drawing on her recent book, "Meatpacking America: How Migration, Work, and Faith Unite and Divide the Heartland" (UNC Press, 2021), she digs deep below the stereotypes and reveals the grit and grace of a heartland that is a major global hub of migration and food production—and also, it turns out, of religion.
