Workshop Series: "Justice for Whom? Transnational, National, and Communal Justice in Rwanda" with Jill Rosenthal

 Jill Rosenthal is an Acting Assistant Professor of History at Stanford.  Her work focuses on the history of migration, identity, and international aid in the African Great Lakes region.  Her dissertation, “From ‘Migrants’ to ‘Refugees’: Humanitarian Aid, Development, and Nationalism in Ngara District, Tanzania”, argues that transnational aid to Rwandan refugees unfolded as part of a broader project of nation state formation and regulation—one which deeply affected regional narratives of community and belonging.  “From ‘Migrants’ to ‘Refugees’” is based on multi-sited oral and archival research funded by the International Institute for Education Graduate Fellow/Fulbright Hays Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship, and conducted in Geneva, Dar es Salaam, and Ngara District.  Jill’s research and teaching both examine the diverse interconnections between global and local spaces, as well as the ongoing relevance of historical events and memories.
