Marina Kaneti

Marina Kaneti is a PhD candidate in Politics at the New School for Social Research, New York. Her dissertation uses the case of Chinese migration to the United States at the end of the nineteenth through early twentieth century to analyze the interactions between migrants, businesses, local communities, and state institutions. In 2013, Marina was a recipient of the GHI International Business History doctoral fellowship that allowed her to explore the links between global migration, advertising, and consumption. She is currently finalizing an article on the visual politics of advertising the migrant ‘other’ both in Europe and the United States. Previously, Marina has published articles on human trafficking, migration, and citizenship. In addition to the GHI Fellowship, Marina is also a recipient of the New School Frank Altschul fellowship in Politics and the India-China Institute Student Fellowship.
