About the event
In this talk, Prof. Dzenovska examines the shifting patterns and regimes of migration as Latvia left the Soviet-cum-Russian sphere of influence and integrated into “the West.” Dzenkovska considers what these patterns of migration and struggles to control them reveal about post-Cold War geopolitical shifts and the symbolic and political efficacy of claims for sovereignty in the periphery—or on the frontline—of two global empires.
