Tammy Ko Robinson will discuss loopholes in US law that created a situation in which several thousand adoptees, many of whom are from Korea, were never naturalized for citizenship, and are thus undocumented and eligible for deportation, theorizing the contradictions between kinship and family, on the one hand, and statelessness on the other.
