Unwalling Citizenship: Building Solidarity, Not Walls

Friday, April 9, 2021 at 12:00pm

Virtual Event

In our increasingly walled world, where anti-immigrant sentiment is broadly increasing, can the idea of citizenship be recuperated for more emancipatory and inclusive democratic agendas? Join us in a conversation with researchers from the University of California, San Diego, as they discuss their work on "citizenship culture" at the U.S.-Mexico border and the network of civic spaces they have co-developed with border communities to cultivate regional and global solidarities. 

  • Fonna Forman, Associate Professor of Political Theory at University of California, San Diego, and Director of the UCSD Center on Global Justice
  • Teddy Cruz, Professor of Public Culture and Urbanization at the University of California, San Diego
  • Moderator: Patchen Markell, Associate Professor of Government at Cornell University
  • Moderator: Jessica Levin Martinez, Richard J. Schwartz Director of the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art

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