Dr. Bridget Haas will discuss her forthcoming book: Suspended Lives: Navigating Everyday Violence in the US Asylum System (University of California Press). Suspended Lives explores the experience of asylum seekers in the midwestern United States in vivid detail. Drawing on long-term ethnographic fieldwork among Cameroonian and other African asylum seekers, Bridget Haas traces the emotional and social effects of being embedded in the US asylum regime.

This book is described by reviewers as “groundbreaking” and “theoretically and conceptually sophisticated”.

Dr. Haas will discuss her research and share her insights into this pressing social issue.

Lunch will be provided. Please join!
