When:
Thursday, March 01, 2018 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Where:
Undergraduate Academic Center Room 308
Description:

Keynote lecture by Tanya Golash-Boza (Professor of Sociology, University of California Merced) with audience Q&A and a pre-event reception.

Why do we put some people in cages and render others unwelcome in our country? How do we decide who is not fit to live among us? This presentation draws parallels between mass incarceration and mass deportation to show that the confluence of four factors has created the conditions of possibility for mass deportation from the United States: (1) nearly all deportees are Latin American and Caribbean men; (2) the rise of a politics of fear in the aftermath of the attacks of September 11th; (3) the global financial crisis; and (4) the utility of deportees.
