Class at the Border: Migration, Confinement, and (Im)mobility

June 6-9, 2018

Against the backdrop of globalization, where capital flows across borders more easily than people, we are living in increasingly walled-off societies. This conference, featuring interdisciplinary scholars from around the world as well as artists, writers, and activists, will explore how explicit recognition and analysis of class can deepen our understanding of the structures and ideas that divide individuals, communities, societies, and nations across the globe.

June 7, 7-9 pm, Provost Lecture: “The Things That Divide Us: Meditations”
