Emily Mitchell-Eaton: “What’s Free About ‘Freely Associated Statehood’? Preserving Colonial Legacies in the Marshall Islands”


January 25, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Stevenson Fireside Lounge | Free

Emily Mitchell-Eaton’s work explores imperial citizenship forms and statecraft in the U.S. Pacific territories. Her research follows territorial migration policies from their enactment in the islands to the new sites of diaspora where imperial migrants resettle, exposing new racial formations, modes of (un)belonging, and immigrant solidarities.

Emily Mitchell-Eaton is a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Non-citizenship, LALS/Chicano Latino Resource Center at UCSC.


The Center for Cultural Studies hosts a weekly Wednesday colloquium featuring work by faculty and visitors. The sessions consist of a 40-45 minute presentation followed by discussion. We gather at noon, with presentations beginning at 12:15 PM. Participants are encouraged to bring their own lunches; the Center provides coffee, tea, and cookies.

All Center for Cultural Studies events are free and open to the public.  Staff assistance is provided by the Institute for Humanities Research.
