Law History Workshop with Dr. Christopher Casey

Tuesday, April 16, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


The final meeting this semester of the Law and History Workshop takes place on Tuesday, April 16. We will discuss the first chapter from Christopher Casey’s forthcoming book, Nationals Abroad: Migration, Nationality, and the Making of Modern International Law.  Casey received his JD from Berkeley Law and his PhD from the Berkeley History Department.  His book is based on Chris’ Berkeley dissertation, which received the 2017 History Department Dissertation of the Year award.  The study looks at the role that migration and debates about identity played in undermining state-based protection and creating the fractured (and somewhat ad hoc) modern international law regime. It delineates and contrasts the separate systems of international rules and institutions developed to address the movements of refugees and minorities, and the movements of capital and commodities.

The Law and History Workshop meets on 4/16 from 12:15-2:00, in 1229 Dwinelle Hall.  Lunch will be provided on a first come basis. Our conversation begins at 12:30 and proceeds on the basis that participants have read the introductory chapter of Nationals Abroad.  For copies of the materials, please contact Anthony Gregory at anthony.gregory@berkeley.edu.
