Race and gender have shaped the law, public policy, and the emotional and physical experiences of migration throughout history.  At the present moment, however, shifting patterns of migration and the current administration’s use of family separation as a deterrent has led to an intense struggle to define migration, the migrant, and the family. This conference explores these struggles on both sides of the border from historical and contemporary perspectives.
