On Disappearing: Displaceability as Inequality in an Age of Deportation
Deborah A. Boehm (University of Nevada, Reno)

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014 at 6:00 pm Download event to my desktop calendar Add event to my Google calendar

The record number of deportations of Mexican nationals being carried out by the U.S. government produces disappearances. Each day, deportees and their loved ones disappear from the United States, sometimes after decades of calling the country their home. This is a new order of inequality: in the current milieu of global movement, one’s displaceability—based on different configurations of citizenship, place of birth, and family ties—directs and restricts movement across borders. Deportations are linked to citizenship but also go beyond it, as U.S. citizens, especially the partners and children of those who are deported, may be similarly marked as “displaceable” and relocated outside the nation through informal or de facto deportation. Through ethnographic research with transnational Mexican families, Boehm documents the deported, the departed, and the disappeared.

Deborah A. Boehm is Associate Professor, Anthropology and Women's Studies at University of Nevada, Reno.

This lecture is part of the 2014-2015 Mellon Graduate Workshop, "Worlds Divided: Interrogating Inequality Past and Present."
