This book cuts across important debates in cultural studies, literary criticism, politics, sociology, and anthropology. Meyda Yegenoglu brings together different theoretical strands in the debates regarding immigration, from Jacques Lacan’s psychoanalytic understanding of the subject formation, to Zygmunt Bauman’s notion of the stranger, to Etienne Balibar’s reading of Hanna Arendt’s notion of ‘right to have rights,” and to Antonio Negri’s concept of the constituent and constitutive power.

Meyda Yegenoglu is a Professor of Sociology at the Middle East Technical University.
