Gendered Families in the Era of Bordered Globalization
Lunchtime Book Talk
Thursday, February 8th
Jerome Greene Hall - Room 102A
12:10 pm - 1:10 pm
Please join us for a Lunchtime Book Talk by Daphna Hacker author of “Legalized Families in the Era of Bordered Globalization” (Cambridge University Press, 2017), followed by comments from Yasmine Ergas, Columbia SIPA.
In this lunchtime talk, Prof. Daphna Hacker will present her recently published book, which at its heart stands her claim that we live in an era in which globalization and borders are two extremely important forces that interrelate in ways that affect every aspect of our lives, including the familial dimension. Her presentation will focus on the gendered dimensions of her work, providing examples of how central gender is to the understanding of families caught within “bordered globalization” and how national and international laws affect women and men abilities to become parents and live with their children in the same country.
A non-pizza lunch will be served.
This event is co-sponsored by The Center for Israeli Legal Studies and The Henry Schneider Speaker Series; and co-supported by The Center for Gender & Sexuality Law, The Society for Immigrant & Refugee Rights, and Columbia Law Feminist Society.
