Native/Immigrant/Refugee: Movements Across Contested Grounds Symposium

Thursday, Mar 12, 2020 - Friday, Mar 13, 2020

Location is ADA accessible

Two global crises—the heightened regulation of movement across national borders, and the impact of climate change—prompt us to examine the meanings and imbrications of the terms “native,” “immigrant” and “refugee” in legal, cultural, political, and environmental contexts. Join us for sustained conversations with keynote speakers Shannon Speed of UCLA; Christine Jacobsen of University of Bergen, Norway; and Yen Le Espiritu of UCSD; and a slate of international and UC scholars at our free two-day symposium.
