    Reinventing the Republic: Gender, Migration, and Citizenship in France by Dr. Catherine Raissiguier, Associate Professor of Women's and Gender Studies will be published on June 10th, 2010 by Stanford University Press.
     
    Reinventing the Republic chronicles the struggle of the sans-papiers to become rights-bearing citizens, and links different social movements to reveal the many ways in which concepts of citizenship and nationality intersect with debates over gender, sexuality, and immigration. Drawing on in-depth interviews and a variety of texts, this disquieting book provides new insights into how exclusion and discrimination operate and influence each other in the world today.
