9/25 – The Complex History of Citizenship: Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month (virtual)

Speaker: Dr. Dan-el Padilla Peralta

Dr. Padilla Peralta will discuss a range of historical and contemporary approaches to the dilemmas of citizenship. From immigration advocacy to the Movement for Black Lives, activists in the United States and throughout the world have drawn attention to the design and institutionalization of different forms of (unequal) citizenship. Dr. Padilla Peralta will map a history of citizenship as a concept and institution from the ancient Mediterranean world to the 21st century. Key questions for discussion will include: Who/what is a citizen? What are the social prerogatives and legal rights that come with citizenship, and how (in)consistent are these across time and space? Who is eligible to become a citizen? How are exclusion and marginalization wired into the historical legacies and present-day practice of citizenship? How is citizenship imagined and narrated?
