“Migration, Asylum and the Role of the State: Defining Boundaries, Redefining Borders”
November 12, 2015 @ 4:00 am - 5:00 pm
Three Fellows at the Kluge Center will discuss the role of the state in establishing geographic, technological and bureaucratic controls over the flow of peoples, cultures and beliefs across borders, and examine how the notions of national borders and state boundaries have evolved over the 20th and 21st century and how migrants and immigrants continue to challenge state-defined categories.
