About the Talk: This lecture explores how queer immigrants and migrants from Latin America and the Caribbean have challenged U.S. immigration law from the 1880s until the present. In emphasizing moments of resistance and resilience, this lecture argues that immigration issues remain--and have historically been--queer issues.
