Peggy Levitt, professor of Sociology at Wellesley College, speaks about immigration.

Peggy Levitt, professor of Sociology at Wellesley College will speak on "Immigration: Images, Icons and Institutions: The Politics and poetics of Creating the Global," for the Spring 2016 Journal of Anthropological Research Distinguished Lecture.

She says we live in a world on the move, and nearly one in seven people in the world today is an internal or international migrant. These dynamics challenge basic assumptions about how and where inequality is produced, family life gets lived and the rights and responsibilities of citizenship get filled. She asks what it is about certain cities and nations that helps explain why museums represent diversity and respond to immigration so differently?
