Migration and (il)legatity

A seminar on problems of migration, legality and illegality 
US-Latin American perspectives

The seminar will explore different aspects of migration with special focus on the Americas and on Latin American immigrants to the US. Questions of legality and illegality, in broad sense of the terms, will be central to the three presentations that all are based on specific research projects and field work.
