REMESO seminar Catrin Lundström 'Migration's whiter shade: bodies and belonging in the race-migration nexus'

Seminar - REMESO - Department of Social and Welfare Studies
‘The migrant’ tends to be imagined as a non-privileged, non-white, non-western subject in search of a better future in Europe or the US and as such is a pre-constituted subject shaped by notions of marginalization and poverty. What kind of stories are obscured by this recurrent image of ‘the migrant’ and how do such categorizations hamper the idea of privilege, belonging and white normativity? Why are some migrants not regarded as migrants despite their migrant status? Why are other individuals seen as migrants and thus denied their national belonging in spite of their formal status as national citizens? The seminar debates analytical tools on migration, belonging and citizenship, with particular attention to a) autochthony and belonging, b) race and citizenship and c) white capital.
10:15 - 12:00
Location: B342
