The Tunisian Migrant Experience in Italy

Dr. Rayed Khedher is an Assistant Teaching Professor at Wake Forest University.

Based on his multi-sited ethnographic research, Dr. Khedher will talk about Tunisian migrants’ experiences of suffering and resistance in Italy. He will analyze how these vulnerable, yet empowered men enter new sites of struggle to protect themselves and to disrupt the hegemonic Italian border narrative.
