Migration Scholar Loren Landau

Patrick O’Meara interviews Loren Landau, the Henry J. Leir Chair in Migration Studies at Tufts University.

Loren B. Landau

My interest is in how different sorts of people come together and are made into communities. . . . [The] experience of movement, of claiming a space somewhere else, of making a new life . . . is something that has fascinated me.

Loren Landau was previously the South African Research Chair in Human Mobility and the Politics of Difference at the African Centre for Migration & Society in Johannesburg. His work explores human mobility, citizenship, development, and political authority.

Landau is author of The Humanitarian Hangover: Displacement, Aid, and Transformation in Western Tanzania, co-editor of Contemporary Migration to South Africa, and editor of Exorcising the Demons Within: Xenophobia, Violence and Statecraft in Contemporary South Africa.
