UCLA Law Students for Immigrant Justice: Book Talk with Professor Shannon Speed

Monday, November 4, 2019
12:15 pm to 1:15 pm
UCLA School of Law, Room 1447

The Law Students for Immigrant Justice (student group) will be hosting a community conversation with Professor Shannon Speed surrounding her new book, Incarcerated Stories: Indigenous Women Migrants and Violence in the Settler-Capitalist State. In her recently published book, Professor Speed delves into the circumstances that make indigenous women who migrate especially vulnerable to neoliberal economic and political practices in Latin America and the US, including policing, detention, and human trafficking. Citizen of the Chickasaw Nation, Director of the American Indian Studies Center, and Professor of Gender Studies and Anthropology at UCLA, Professor Speed has spent the last two decades in Mexico researching indigenous politics, legal anthropology, human rights, migration, and activist research.

Lunch will be provided. RSVP at http://bit.ly/profspeed
