Previous Colloquia Events

  1. This conference explores how the regulation of migration has often served complex political and economic agendas by reinforcing inequalities through imposed legal categories. Through immigration restrictions, governments have acted to exclude, control, and derive gain from groups of men and women who, driven by poverty, environmental degradation, violence, and repression, have sought to enter the borders they enforce.

  3. Speaker:
    Santos will be presenting his latest work, “Lessons from the TPP and the Future of Labor Chapters in Trade Agreements.” His piece uses the failure of the Trans-Pacific Partnership to think through the merits of traditional “trade-labor” linkages, and explores various ways to “retool” the global economic regime to address broader distributive concerns and ameliorate the ill-effects of trade liberalization on labor, such as job losses and wage declines.
  4. Speaker:

    Based on long-term ethnographic research in Turkey among ethnically Turkish labor migrants from Bulgaria, Parla’s presentation will inquire into the appeal and limits of the term “precarity,” an increasingly ubiquitous designation to refer to a generalized condition of insecurity and vulnerability.
