I looking forward to March 18, day one of the Borders, Captivity, and Memory symposium. The full schedule with info and links is on the website!
My contribution will be at the Roundtable 2: “Italian Others”: Histories of Racialized Migration and Diaspora between the Nineteenth Century and the Present, 2:45–4:15 p.m. (ET). Speakers at this roundtable will take up historical questions of migration, including by considering how race has operated in the Italian peninsula and the racialization of Italians who emigrated abroad. What do these histories reveal about the relationship between migration and racism? How can past dynamics of racialization be placed in dialogue with present debates?
