On February 1st , 10:00 – 12:00, the launch of the Processing Citizenship seminar series will take place at the University of Twente with a seminar entitled ‘Governing Migration/ Bordering Europe at the “Hotspots” in Greece’.
Katerina Rozakou is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Amsterdam. Her research interests include political anthropology, humanitarianism, volunteerism, the state, bureaucracy and migration. She has done extensive fieldwork on the solidarity with the refugees movement in Greece (2002-2007) and in the last years (2014-2016) she did fieldwork in Athens and Lesvos on the treatment of irregular migrants by state and non-states agents. Her monograph, Out of “love” and “solidarity”: Voluntary work with refugees in early 21st century Greece will appear in February 2018 (in Greek, English translation in preparation). Katerina’s lecture will focus on how the lived experiences of people governing irregular migration help us understand broader processes regarding sovereign power and the state.

She is author of Spaces of Governmentality: Autonomous Migration and the Arab Uprisings (2014), co-author with Glenda Garelli of Tunisia as a Revolutionized Space of Migration (2017), and co-editor of Foucault and the History of Our Present (2015).
