Professor of Anthropology at the New School for Social Research, Miriam Ticktin is the author of "Casualties of Care: Immigration and the Politics of Humanitarianism in France". Dr. Ticktin works at the intersections of the anthropology of medicine and science, law, and transnational and postcolonial feminist theory. Her research has focused on what it means to make political claims in the name of a universal humanity: she has been interested in what these claims tell us about universalisms and difference, about who can be a political subject, on what basis people are included and excluded from communities, and how inequalities get instituted or perpetuated in this process. Join the Kenan Institute for Ethics in conversation with Miriam Ticktin Monday November 26 at 5:30pm in the Ahmadieh Family Conference Room (West Duke 101).

Roots and Routes: Understanding the Ethical Challenges of the Global Migration. Unprecedented population movements are challenging our notions of sovereignty, citizenship, statehood, and selfhood. The Roots and Routes series brings to Duke activists, artists, academics, and policy-makers who are working on new ways of seeing and understanding human migrancy.
