Migrant Crossings was reviewed by Verjine Adanalian published in Human Rights Quarterly.
“In Migrant Crossings, as the title might suggest, Dr. Annie Isabel Fukushima sets the reader out to experience multiple crossings. In the literal sense, this work crosses through an impressive range of disciplines, including women’s and feminist studies, critical race and ethnic studies, sexuality studies, labor studies, legal studies, and sociology. In the figurative sense, Fukushima has the reader cross from this world into the spooky, abstract world through her “unsettled witnessing” of “ghosts” to her discussions of the “living dead.” By focusing on Asians and Latinx in the United States, Fukushima asks the reader to contemplate how migrants, and specifically victims of human trafficking, “cross into visibility legally, through frames of citizenship, and through narratives of victimhood.” Fukushima’s work is a significant contribution, especially as migration continues to be a hotly debated political and social issue—not only in the United States but worldwide…. Fukushima’s work should be celebrated for the wealth of knowledge and information it has managed to contain in less than 300 pages.”Verjine Adanalian, Human Rights Quarterly, https://muse.jhu.edu/article/761343
