Graduate conference 2018

“Walls and Bridges: Migration and its Histories”

Friday, APRIL 12 , 2019 (all day)

The recent resurgence in nativist and populist ideologies has reframed and intensified global discourse on migration, citizenship, and societal inclusion. Reviving old nativist slogans and well-worn xenophobia, contemporary political actors and social movements have given new voice to restrictionism, racism, and extremism for the sake of social control and national security. Left in the balance are vulnerable communities of immigrants, migrants, and refugees, all of whom are adversely affected, if not gravely threatened by policies and legislation intended to discriminate, exclude, and expel.
