Roundtable: Migration and Citizenship
April 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
“Histories of Migration and Citizenship in Europe and the United States”
Friday, April 16th, 2021
Who gets to be a citizen? Who decides the answer to this question–and on what basis? When does citizenship become a flashpoint for political conflict? How do migration and mobility shape competing citizenship claims? Such high-stakes questions dominate contemporary discussions of citizenship, both as a political and legal category and as lived experience. But the problem of citizenship has its own complicated history. This roundtable brings together three scholars of European and US history–Celia Donert (University of Cambridge, UK), Emily Greble (Vanderbilt University), and Marla Ramirez (UW-Madison)–for a conversation about the development of citizenship practices in the modern world. The roundtable will be chaired by Brandon Bloch and Kathryn Ciancia.
