Women’s & Gender Studies Feminist Lecture Series: Beyond Innocence

March 4, 2019, 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm


Our annual speaker event sponsored by the Vilas Trust Fund welcomes is Miriam Ticktin, Associcate Professor of Anthropology from New School for Social Research.

She was Chair of Anthropology from 2016-2018, Co-Director of the Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility between 2013-2016, and Director of Gender Studies from 2012-2013. She received her PhD in Anthropology at Stanford University and from the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales in Paris, France (as a co-tutelle), and she holds an MA in English Literature from Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar.

She is the author of “Casualties of Care: Immigration and the Politics of Humanitarianism in France” (University of California Press, 2011) and “In the Name of Humanity: the Government of Threat and Care” (co-editor with Ilana Feldman, Duke University Press, 2010), along with many other articles and book chapters. Ticktin is currently at work on two related book projects: a short book on innocence as a political concept, and how it produces an unending search for purity; and a book on the way border wall technologies travel, both transnationally and cross-species.

This event is sponsored by the William F. Vilas Trust Fund. Free and open to the public. For more information contact WGS at (414) 229-5918 or vial email at wmns@uwm.edu.
