El Foro Series: Universal Citizenship at the Limits of Identity and Law by Dr. Andres Guzman

The idea of universal citizenship has been the object of much critique during the last decades, with many critics pointing to the racial, class, and gendered (among other) exclusions upon which the notion of universality is founded. Rather than jettisoning the idea of universal citizenship, the present talk seeks to take these critiques as a point of departure for its reconceptualization. Dr. Andres Guzman is an Assistant Professor of Spanish and Portuguese at IU.
