Description:

In this 47-page working paper from the University of Washington's Center for Communication and Civic Engagement, Professor Matthew Sparke interrogates the notion of citizenship in a changing global environment, or as he states, "the primary goal of this chapter is to register some of the complex ways in which citizenship is being recodified in an area where neoliberal commitments to public-private partnerships and free market solutions are well entrenched." Professor Sharpe begins by examining the previous work on citizenship and social class, while then engaging in a qualitative examination of the border region development plans around the Pacific Northwest, or the region that is known to some as "Cascadia." Professor Sparke also examines the proposal by one INS officer that persons who frequently cross international borders for travel or business be issued a credit-card device that would contain detailed information.
