Short Abstract:

We will address historical and current labor-related processes that produce racializations and examine their social, cultural, political, and emotional consequences in new discourses supporting and opposing the flow of humans as "immigration."

Long Abstract:

This panel is open to papers addressing linkages of historical and present-day labor-related processes that have produced, changed, and made increasingly complex today's racializations. We seek to examine social, cultural, political and emotional consequences of these racializations in new discourses supporting and opposing the flow of human as "immigration." We welcome ethnographic-based contributions to analyses of (a) the development of racial and ethnic categories associated with positions in the system of production, be it on plantation or plantation-like economies, industrial or post-industrial settings and area currently labeled peri-urban; (b) the intersections of past and current racialized economies; and (c) linkages between the politics of segregation and the pseudoscience of race that promote the persistence and reemergence of racial categories in the lived experience of humans settling, moving, and staying to make place.
