Presentación de libro: Engage and Evade: How Latino Immigrant Families Manage Surveillance in Everyday Life
lunes, 26 de junio a las 10:00 h (Pacífico)
Ponente: Dr. Asad L. Asad
Asad L. Asad is Assistant Professor of Sociology at Stanford University and a faculty affiliate at the Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity. Asad’s current research agenda considers how institutional categories—in particular, immigrants’ legal status—matter for multiple forms of inequality. His book, Engage and Evade: How Latino Immigrant Families Manage Surveillance in Everyday Life (Princeton University Press), examines how and why undocumented immigrants worried about deportation nonetheless engage with institutions whose records the government can use to monitor them. Additional research projects focus on the effects of immigration enforcement on health, the role of the federal judiciary in immigration enforcement, and the capacity of immigrant-serving organizations to counter the inequalities of the U.S. immigration system.
