'Citizens in motion: emigration, immigration and re-migration across China's borders' is Elaine Lynn-Ee Ho's new book, published by Stanford University Press in 2018. Join us for a panel discussion of the book, which uses China as the starting point from which to consider complex patterns of migration that shape nation-building and citizenship, both in origin and destination countries. Drawing on interviews and ethnographic observations conducted in China, Canada, Singapore, and the China-Myanmar border from 2008 to 2015, the book offers an alternative approach to studying migration, migrant experience, and citizenship. This will be a lively discussion that reflects on the book's important contribution to knowledge and to future scholarship.
