Citizen and Citizenship within and Beyond the Nation
Seattle University School of Law - Center for Global Justice
Cleveland State Law Review, Vol. 52, No. 1 & 2, 2005
This review essay deploys critical social theory and critical race theory to interrogate concepts of citizen and citizenship. It reviews three submissions to a Lationa/o Critical Legal Theory (LatCrit) Symposium. One explores the relationship between law, race, and nation-building. The second examines the relationship between race and citizenship through the prism of police round-up of undocumented workers in Arizona. The last located the question of citizenship and legal subjecthood beyond the traditional confines of the nation-state.
