The "Citizenship and Classification" symposium brings together scholars from a range of disciplines to consider the role of classification procedures and ideologies in the construction of citizenship categories over the last two hundred years. Speakers will consider the practices and assumptions that have defined citizenship across diverse geographic and historical contexts, from the regulation of identity documents to suffrage and incarceration. What frameworks undergird the category of "the citizen," and how does this category interact with other classificatory projects? How can a comparative approach shed light on the possibilities and limitations of citizenship?
