Pursuing Citizenship in the Enforcement Era: In Conversation with Ming Hsu Chen

Friday, March 5, 2021 at 12:00pm

Virtual Event

Pursuing Citizenship in the Enforcement Era by Ming Hsu Chen provides readers with the everyday perspectives of immigrants on what it is like to try to integrate into American society during a time when immigration policy is focused on enforcement and exclusion. The law says that everyone who is not a citizen is an alien, but the social reality is more complicated. Chen will join Migrations taskforce co-chair Shannon Gleeson in conversation to discuss the citizen/alien binary, theories of citizenship, and how to construct pathways to citizenship that enhance both formal and substantive equality of immigrants.

  • Ming Hsu Chen, Faculty Director of the Immigration and Citizenship Law Program, Associate Professor at the University of Colorado, Boulder Law School
  • Moderator: Shannon Gleeson, Associate Professor at the Cornell School of Industrial and Labor Relations, Co-chair of the Migrations initiative task force 

This talk is part of Reimagining Citizenship, a speaker series by Cornell Migrations.
