Rose Holz,
In this lecture, Professor Donato will discuss her book project with historian Donna Gabaccia. Their work suggests that the roles of women and men in human migrations require a substantial re-thinking and shift away from simple notions related to the feminization of migration. Women and men who migrate live in gendered social worlds, embedded in the contexts of families and communities. As a result, women and men have always been actors who migrate, and at times and in different places, women (men) are more likely than men (women) to migrate.
