Crimmigration has rapidly become the dominant response to human mobility around theglobe. It has emerged, ironically, in tandem with growing economic globalization. Forcapital, national borders have virtually disappeared, while the walls, virtual and literal,are growing higher for workers and others who need mobility to thrive, and even survive. Race, ethnicity, and personal wealth matter in who gains entry.

This conference will treat crimmigration and bordering holistically as systems nested within economy and society in subtle, and not-so-subtle, ways. In so doing, theconference calls attention to the various 'faces' and expieriences of crimmigration andbordering across the globe as well as to a critical examination of the scholarship so far.
