Linking Citizenship, Migration, Labor, Border, and Carceral Studies: A Seminar with Bridget Anderson

October 4, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm  |  Stevenson Fireside Lounge


How, when, where, and why do citizenship, migration, labor, border, and carceral studies converge? What happens when we put these fields in dialogue with one another? Why the distinction between migration studies and refugee studies? When do forced migration and labor migration overlap and when are they different? Who is a “migrant,” “refugee,” “citizen,” and “worker”? What is the difference between prisoner and detainee? Between citizen and denizen? Over 2016-17, scholars at UC Santa Cruz involved with Non-citizenship, our Andrew W. Mellon Foundation John E. Sawyer Seminar on the Comparative Study of Culture, will grapple with these questions as we reflect on and link our Sawyer Seminar’s 3 themes: forced migration, labor mobility and precarity, and the fluidity of status. Bridget Anderson, Professor of Migration and Citizenship and Deputy Director of the Centre on Migration, Policy and Society at the University of Oxford, helps kick off our discussion by leading a seminar for UC Santa Cruz faculty, staff, and students on key and emerging questions and concerns in citizenship, migration, labor, border, and carceral studies.

Emily Mitchell-Eaton, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Postdoctoral Scholar, will moderate the seminar with Professor Anderson.

UC Santa Cruz faculty, staff, and students should register for the seminar here by Tuesday, September 27.  To access the readings, click on the following links:
