    “Heroes” of the Global South

    The movement of peoples across the globe for work, livelihoods, trade, and cultural exchange has been a constant in human history. This panel explores comparative forms of labor migration across several geographies—South Asia, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia. Panelists will think critically through the cultural designation of low-waged migrant laborers as the “heroes” of the contemporary global South and their role in the global economy as vital sources of both remittances for their families and labor for the global economy.

    Informality and the Future of Work

    The predominance of informal forms of work and means of making a living across the global South requires a critical intervention into current debates around the future of work. This moderated conversation foregrounds the complexities and challenges for people laboring in the informal sector in the South Asian and Latin American contexts.
