TAM Friday Lecture Series: ‘The Proliferation of Mass Immigrant Detention and Externalization of Immigration Controls, The Hegemony of American Crimmigation’
October 25, 2019 at 12:15 pm - 1:45 pm
Melina Juárez Pérez is a graduate of the TAM program and an instructor of political science and women, gender and sexuality studies at Western Washington University. She utilizes theories that speak to and incorporate the lived realities of marginalized peoples; theories such as embodiment, historical trauma, decolonization, intersectionality and Marxism. Her work aims at developing a critical understanding of the structures of power and privilege that inform policy and ultimately affect immigrant health.
The lecture series is designed to enhance students’ understanding of transatlantic studies through direct contact with academic practitioners. It is particularly targeted towards students in the TransAtlantic Masters program and undergraduate majors in Contemporary European Studies, but is open to all University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill students and the general public.
