    Citizenship’s Insular Cases: From Greece and Rome to Puerto Rico: 2018 Heller Lecture

    Lecture: Featured | April 30 | 5:30-7 p.m. | 370 Dwinelle Hall | Note change in time

    Dan-el Padilla Peralta, Princeton University

    Department of Classics

    The title for this lecture references a series of court opinions in 1901 that marked a decisive turn in the United States’ practice of what has since become known as “differentiated citizenship.” Working backwards from this historical conjuncture, I will examine the appearance of systems of differentiated citizenship in the Greco-Roman Mediterranean and comment on their reception in several modern colonial (and postcolonial) contexts.
