A couple of Dominican colleagues and I have come up with a panel on the scales and landscapes of migration in the Dominican Republic. If you’re interested, join us on April 22nd. You can also pass it along to folks who might like to converse with three relatively young scholars interested in Dominicanness, place and transnational livelihoods. Details are included in the decent promo art (see below).
Here’s a bit of info on the scales, speakers and topics:
