Join Professor Jacqueline Stevens for a discussion about her new book, Citizenship in Question: Evidentiary Birthright and Statelessness (Duke University Press, 2017). She will discuss the contingencies of citizenship in a comparative context and the struggles of individuals around the world to prove their identity and citizenship. Elizabeth Meehan, Class of 2017, will serve as interlocutor for this discussion.

Students, faculty, and all others interested are welcome. Lunch will be provided.

Jacqueline Stevens is Professor of Political Science in the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences. She studies political theories and practices of membership since antiquity. Her current studies of deportation law enforcement engage government documents revealing contemporary illegalities, including practices resulting in the unlawful deportation of U.S. citizens from the United States.

This event is sponsored by the Deportation Research Clinic, part of the Buffett Institute for Global Studies.
