Open to the Public

Our contemporary age of migration is also a time of “crisis,” with movements from global south to global north perpetually framed in emergency terms. In Italy, these discourses are intimately tied not only to arrivals by sea, but to racialized notions of national identity and a general lack of reckoning with colonial history.

Join us for a talk with Eleanor Paynter, Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Italian Studies and at the Cogut Institute for the Humanities. Paynter studies migration, asylum, and testimony, focusing on Africa-Europe mobilities and bridging filmic, media, and literary analysis with ethnographic methods.
