Lecture on Haitian Migrants in Cuba during the Age of US Occupation

Haitian-Migrants-in-Cuba

The Forum on Migration and the Institute of Latin American Studies at Columbia University invite you to its next seminar titled “Haitian Migrants in Cuba, or the Workings of US Empire in the Caribbean” with Matthew Casey (Nina Bell Suggs Professor of History at the University of Southern Mississippi.)

Matthew Casey will present from his new book Empire’s Guest Workers: Haitian Migrants in Cuba during the Age of US Occupation (Cambridge University Press, 2017)—forthcoming this Spring—which uses the on-the-ground experiences of Haitian migrants in Cuba to understand how the daily actions of seemingly powerless individuals shaped larger processes of US imperialism, economic penetration, race-making and shifts in global migration policies.

Matthew Casey’s presentation takes place on April 25, at 6:00pm, at the Sulzberger Parlor, 3rd floor Barnard Hall (3009 Broadway, at West 117 Street) in New York, New York.
