State of Disaster: The Failure of U.S. Migration Policy in an Age of Climate Change with Dr. María Cristina García

April 22 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join the Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC) for a talk by Dr. María Cristina García on her latest book, State of Disaster: The Failure of U.S. Migration Policy in an Age of Climate Change (2022, The University of North Carolina Press). In this critical history of U.S. policy on migration in the Global South, García observes that there is actually no such thing as a climate refugee under current U.S. law. Most initiatives intended to assist those who must migrate are flawed and ineffective from inception because they are derived from outmoded policies. The talk will be held virtually on Zoom.

Registration is required to receive a viewing link. Funding for this program is provided through Community Project Grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with the Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC). Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
