Spaces of ‘crisis’: immigration and (de/re)bordering regimes
Somayeh Chitchian

Somayeh’s doctoral project focuses on the emergent and shifting geographies of (im)migration and movement. Her research primarily critiques the ontology of fixed and static places in the analysis of migration—whether in the framework of the nation-state, primarily, or ‘the city,’ as currently—and the prioritization of the receiving society and the spaces of settlement over a processual understanding of migration and mobility. A further focus is the complex interconnectivities of the geographies of the ‘sending’ and ‘receiving’ societies and the spaces in-between of concentration and extension and (de/re)bordering regimes which these movements constantly (re)configure and (re)produce at all spatial scales.
