Lecture 2: Going Local

Peter van Dommelen (Brown University)

Discussions of migration have tended to privilege the bigger picture and long-distance connections, drawing lines between the dots, now mostly relabeled as ‘nodes’. There has been very little consideration, however, of what or rather who made up those dots and, most of all, how connections were forged and maintained at those critical places. In the second lecture of the series, I focus on precisely these locales and examine why people were attracted by these particular places and how migrants interacted with local inhabitants to build new lives.
