Lecture 1. The Concept of Illegality: Defining the ‘Other’.
Abstract: Since the ancient world, the tendency to categorise people in a hierarchical way has been prevalent. There have been ‘out’ groups including minority and those of migrant origin, throughout history subject to discrimination and violence. It is, perhaps, only since the twentieth century that migrants have been defined as ‘illegal’. This introduction explains how this came to happen on a general level and then using brief examples to illustrate the impact of such labelling. These case studies will range from East European Jews in the 1900s to more recent examples such as in Britain with those from the ‘Windrush generation’ and in the USA with those at the Mexican border from Central America.
