Documented and Deportable Lecture by Dr. Gomberg-Muñoz
Dr. Ruth Gomberg-Muñoz will present preliminary results from a three-year project with Latino/a immigrants undertaking the process of legalizing their immigration status in the U.S. This research suggests that contemporary shifts in U.S. immigration policy herald an expansion of provisional immigration statuses and a widening rift between these statuses and U.S. citizenship. Even the refuge of legal status is increasingly threatened by policies and practices that render legal residency precarious and legal residents permanently deportable.
The Peace and Social Justice Faculty Research Series is a forum for Loyola faculty to present their work on issues of relevance to peace and social justice to interested faculty colleagues in an informal atmosphere. Feel free to bring a lunch and hear about this fascinating research project. The talks are geared toward faculty; graduate students and advanced undergraduates are welcome.
