Learning From Immigrant Youth: Language Brokering

When: Friday, October 25, 2019

Where: Friedman Hall 208

Time: 5pm

Migration@Brown invites you to our second interdisciplinary conversation on migration research in theory and practice with Marjorie Orellana.

In this talk, Professor Orellana will provide an overview of research on immigrant youth language brokering over the last two decades, considering how understanding of the phenomenon has grown, and what we know about the competencies that youth both develop and display through this work.

Given the current sociopolitical context of growing xenophobia and cultural polarization:
What might we all learn from immigrant youth? How might we better leverage and support these skills in schools?

Re/membering: Central American Migration to the U.S.

When: Thursday, October 10, 2019

Where: Alumnae Hall, Crystal Room

Time: 5pm

Migration@Brown invites you to our first interdisciplinary conversation on migration research in theory and practice with Susan Bibler Coutin, Professor of Criminology, Law and Society, and Anthropology, University of California—Irvine.

The recent arrivals of Central Americans seeking to enter the United States have been construed as an immigration issue. What if these arrivals were instead understood as bearing histories of violence in which the United States is implicated?

To explore this question, this talk draws on the authors’ engaged fieldwork with Central American immigrants and their allies from the 1980s to the present. It suggests that current conditions forcing Central Americans to the United States are deeply rooted in past political, economic and legal violence. In particular, exclusionary policies have displaced individuals, families, and communities, who in turn have become enclosed within national or other spaces. Sanctuaries and caravans have emerged as a means of challenging spatial necropolitics.
