“Heroes” of the Global South: Labor Migration in Comparative Perspective

 

Description

The movement of peoples across the globe for work, livelihoods, trade, and cultural exchange has been a constant in human history. This panel explores comparative forms of labor migration across several geographies—South Asia, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia. Panelists will think critically through the cultural designation of low-waged migrant laborers as the “heroes” of the contemporary global South and their role in the global economy as vital sources of both remittances for their families and labor for the global economy.
