Julie Kleinman is an urban anthropologist working in France and francophone West Africa. Her research examines how migration changes urban spaces and social relations. From Spring 2018, she is a McMillan-Stewart Fellow at the Hutchins Center’s W.E.B. Du Bois Research Institute of Harvard University. She will present Freedoms to Circulate: Rethinking Borders and Belonging Through West African Mobility. Discussant: Ingrid Monson.

A week in advance, the presenter’s paper will be circulated through the Harvard African Studies Workshop listserv. It is assumed that everyone has read the paper before the workshop.  After presentation and commentary, Workshop attendees are invited to engage in critique and discussion, under the moderation of the Workshop Chairs.
