Anthropology Student Association to host Carolina Boe for talk on Prison Experiences of Undocumented Migrants

March 15th, 2018
2:00 PM

Location
Dinwiddie Hall
Tulane University

The 2017-2018 Tulane Anthropology Student Association’s colloquium series Migration: Perspectives Across Fields, will continue on Thursday, March 15, 2:00 PM. Join us in welcoming Dr. Carolina S. Boe, who will present her research in a talk entitled Anthropologies of Confinement: the Prison Experiences of Undocumented Migrants and the 1.5 Generation.

Dr. Boe is currently a post-doc in the Department of Culture and Global Studies at Aalborg University in Copenhagen, Denmark. Her doctoral dissertation, titled The Undeported: Foreign-Nationals Caught Between Criminal Justice and Emigration Enforcement in France and the US, addresses the intersection of youths’ experiences as both prisoners and undocumented migrants, following their trajectories through the criminal justice system within the suburbs of Paris. Much of Dr. Boe’s current research continues to focus on the anthropology of confinement, migration, and deportation.

The colloquium is free and open to the public.

The Tulane Anthropology Student Association is the graduate student organization whose year-long representatives serve as liaisons between the anthropology faculty and student populations. TASA representatives also organize the colloquium series. Colloquia are held in the first floor of Dinwiddie Hall and provide a venue for upper level graduate students, faculty members and outside scholars to present and discuss their anthropologically-themed research. TASA representatives also attend Graduate School Student Association (GSSA) as well as Graduate and Professional School Association (GAPSA) meetings and participate in the decisions made by these overarching Tulane graduate student organizations.

View Full Event Description

The Center for Academic Equity at Tulane University is proud to present Border Li(n)es: Excluding, Extracting, and Expelling Immigrants in the Southern U.S. on September 25, 2018 at 7:00 PM as part of the Equity Speaker Series.

Following a summer of turbulent immigration relations in the United States, the Fall 2018 Equity Speaker Panel will focus on immigration on our Southern border and will feature specialists whose experiences vary from grassroots to professorial work. Panelists will include Josiah Heyman, Director of the Center for Inter-American and Border Studies, Ronald Martinez, New Orleans immigrant activist and spokesperson for the Congress of Day Laborers, Hiroko Kusuda, Clinical Professor and Director of Immigration Law at the Smith Law Clinic and Center for Social Justice at Loyola, and Laila Hlass, Clinical Professor of Law at Tulane Law School and the Stone Center for Latin American Studies.

These four distinguished speakers will share the stage of Freeman Auditorium to discuss the drastic variation in immigrant relations across the national, regional, and local spaces and ways that members of American society may become engaged in or change the now toxic and polarized political climate. This inaugural discussion will be followed by a question and answer session.
