Conversations in Leadership: The Limits and Possibilities of Sanctuary: Modes of Resistance and Solidarity in the Trump Era

Alexandra Délano Alonso is Associate Professor and Chair of Global Studies at The New School and the current holder of the Eugene M. Lang Professorship for Excellence in Teaching and Mentoring. She received her doctorate in International Relations from the University of Oxford. Her research focuses on diaspora policies, the transnational relationships between states and migrants, migration in the Central America-Mexico-US corridor, sanctuary, and the politics of memory in relation to borders, violence and migration. Her work is driven by a concern with the inequalities underlying forced migration, the structures that lead to the marginalization of undocumented migrants in the public sphere, and the practices of resistance and solidarity focused on migrants’ access to rights, from a transnational perspective.

She is co-founder and former co-director of the Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility with Miriam Ticktin, as well as a member of The New School’s Sanctuary Working Group and faculty advisor to La Xente student organization. Professor Délano Alonso’s current research focuses on transformative practices of solidarity across the Central America-Mexico-US migration corridor.

Born and raised in Mexico, her experience living across borders and her mixed origins as the granddaughter of immigrants have deeply shaped her research, teaching, mentoring, university service and activism.
