2018 CSWS Acker-Morgen Lecture: Rhacel Salazar Parreñas

March 7th, 3:30-5pm

Gerlinger Alumni Lounge

Dr. Parreñas “is an ethnographer whose research examines experiences of migrant workers from the Philippines. Her earlier works examined the constitution of gender in women’s migration. Her more recent works focus on the construction of migrant workers as ‘unfree laborers.’ Her current project focuses on the experiences of migrant domestic workers in Dubai and Singapore. This study examines their experience of indenture and identifies and analyzes how various stakeholders—states, recruitment agencies, employers and domestic workers—recognize and accordingly attend to their state of unfreedom.”
