On 13 December 2018, Stefania Donzelli will defend her PhD thesis entitled, 'Feminisms and Migration into Italy: the intersectionality of gender and race'. Her research explores feminist uses of ‘gender’ as a social category in relation to the phenomenon of cross-border migration and its regulation.

The study examines feminist narratives produced from lived experiences of struggle that contest and contrast with the current governing of migration into Italy during the period 2007-2013.

It focuses on ‘gender’ as a structure of power affecting both migrants and citizens in destination societies and as a source of identification shaping the construction of feminist subjectivities. It argues that this category may be both distinguished from and interlocked with ‘race’ in ways that normalise or deconstruct the production of ‘irregular’ migration as an object of governmental power.

The ceremony for the Public Defence will begin promptly at 16.00 hrs in the Auditorium of the ISS, Kortenaerkade 12, The Hague. The doors will be closed after the start of the Public Defence, but will be briefly opened after the candidate’s introduction to allow latecomers to enter.

The ceremony will be followed by a reception in the Atrium of the ISS

Professors are invited to join the academic procession.
