January 25, 2017 – Emily Mitchell-Eaton, “What’s Free About ‘Freely Associated Statehood’? Preserving Colonial Legacies in the Marshall Islands”
Emily Mitchell-Eaton’s work explores imperial citizenship forms and statecraft in the U.S. Pacific territories. Her research follows territorial migration policies from their enactment in the islands to the new sites of diaspora where imperial migrants resettle, exposing new racial formations, modes of (un)belonging, and immigrant solidarities.
Mitchell-Eaton is a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Non-citizenship, LALS/Chicano Latino Research Center at UCSC.
