Migration: Discipline and Displacement

April 26-27, 2018
Glickman Conference Center, CLA 1.302B
University of Texas at Austin

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.

Presented by the Institute for Historical Studies. Generously co-sponsored by the Department of History, the Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice, the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, LLILAS BENSON Latin American Studies and Collections, the Center for Asian American Studies, the John L. Warfield Center for African and African American Studies, the Center for Mexican American Studies, and the Department of American Studies.
