We are please to invite you to IM/MOBILITY IN MIGRATORY CONTEXTS: A virtual roundtable on contemporary issues of migration, transit, securitization and mobilities in Central America and Mexico

Speakers for the event include: 

​​Noelle Brigden, an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at Marquette University.

Her book, The Migrant Passage: Clandestine Journeys from Central America (Cornell University Press 2018), won the Yale Ferguson Award.

Dr. Rebecca Galemba, an Associate Professor at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver and co-director of the DU Center for Immigration Policy & Research.

Low Engaged Anthropology Award from the American Anthropological Association.

Dr. Amelia Frank-Vitale, is an engaged anthropologist focused on the long-reaching consequences of the US border and immigration regime. After years in Mexico studying transit migration, her current project focuses on life in and around San Pedro Sula, Honduras. She looks at overlapping regimes of mobility control - linking the invisible borders inside the city's neighborhoods to the ever-expanding US border - and the multiple ways that young people try and live with, navigate, and break through these borders. She is currently a Term Assistant Professor in the Human Rights Program at Barnard College. 

Caitlyn Yates, a doctoral candidate in Anthropology at the University of British Columbia. Her research centers on the anthropology of borders and the anthropology of transit migration to study the impacts of border security and immigration enforcement policies on the migration experiences of individuals transiting through Latin America. She has published in Public Anthropologist and many public-facing outlets.
