V. Santiago-Irizarry.

The Latino experience in the United States may be impinged upon by state regulation and governmentality to a greater extent than for non-Latin@s. Drawing from a theoretical and methodological toolkit developed within the anthropology of law, this course considers how the condition of “illegality” and their constitution as a population “in need” (Flores and Yúdice 1993) shapes individual and collective life among Latin@s and their communities. Although immigration is salient among the issues we will examine, the stress will be on how it articulates with multiple domains to suffuse and inform other processes.
