Dominican Republic

"I am currently looking at issues of race, identity, and citizenship in the Dominican Republic. The Dominican Republic shares the island of Hispaniola with Haiti, and it has recently modified its citizenship laws in order to exclude the children of undocumented immigrants from acquiring Dominican citizenship (as of 2010). This change affects mostly the children of Haitian migrants, who are a major source of cheap labor for various Dominican economic sectors. Moreover, a 2013 court decision stripped several generations of Haitian Dominicans of Dominican citizenship (dating back to 1929), rendering them stateless. I examine how Dominican citizenship and identity have expanded in transnational ways to include Dominicans residing overseas, but have become more limited in the domestic realm, turning into a sense of autochthony in which Haitians are the foreign, racialized Other." -Dr. Ernesto Sagas

Korea

"Movement of people across national borders occurs for a variety of reasons. South Korea had been a labor-sending country for the most of the twentieth century until its rapid industrialization brought about a major shift in its dependence on foreign labor. Similar trends are found in Japan, Taiwan, and other industrializing countries that had traditionally resisted receiving immigrants and foreign laborers. The industrialization in South Korea simultaneously ushered in rural-to-urban migration, particularly of young females, that created a major gender imbalance and the shortage of marriageable women in rural communities. Consequently, local governments and private agencies promoted international marriages for rural men, who are at times considerably older than their spouses coming from countries like Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, China, and the Philippines. These marriages greatly internationalized rural areas, as their children with mixed ethnic heritages began to matriculate into public school systems. My research focuses on these evolving changes in Korean society, with a focus on the role of civil society actors in facilitating societal integration through the discourses and policies of “damunhwa” or “multi-culture.” -Dr. Joon Kim
