Digital Topologies of Migration

With Gabriel Popescu (Associate Professor of Geography & Political Science, IU--South Bend). Current migration to Europe is unfolding in a context of unprecedented adoption of digital technologies by governments and refugees alike. This paper examines how the interplay between digitization to secure the EU's border and migrants' digital strategies to enable movement across borders produces new topological spaces for migration that cannot be easily understood in terms of typical nation-state cartographies. Sponsored by the Institute for European Studies. Refreshments will be served.
