Migration Exchanges Series

The Center sponsors a series each semester on topics related to immigration. These informal presentations allow faculty members and graduate students across the campus an opportunity to share works-in-progress to audiences of interested students and faculty and to provide an environment for networking and intellectual collaboration.




These Borders Are Not Our Borders: Uprisings of the Landless, Global Labor Migration, and the 21st Century Food Revolution



Annelise Orleck is Professor of History at Dartmouth College. She is the author of four previous books including Storming Ceasars Palace: How Black Mothers Fought Their Own War on Poverty and Common Sense and A Little Fire: Women and Working Class Politics in the United States. Her new book "We Are All Fast Food Workers Now": The Global Uprising Against Poverty Wages traces the rise and evolution of a new global labor movement comprising low-wage workers. The book is an up close and personal look at globalization and its costs, told through the eyes and in the words of low-wage workers themselves who in the second decade of the 21st century are fighting for respect, safety, and a living wage.
