Join us as he delineates the ways Spanish migration theater elucidates a necropolitical hierarchy based on race. Focusing on the representation of Latin Americans, North African, and sub-Saharan Africans, his invigorating talk breaks away from the tendency to look at migration in terms of a general “other” to examine their disparate experiences in regard to their acceptance and integration into Spanish society, paying close attention to the racial specificities of each migrant group.
