Migration in the Americas: A Panel Discussion about Borders, Humanity, and the State

March 28 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The International Studies program would like to enthusiastically invite you to attend the 2019 Anne and Sandy Dolowitz Lecture in Human Rights.

Although, lately, most accounts focus on the US-Mexico border, migration takes many forms and unfolds daily throughout the Americas. And while sound bites and charged imagery might inflame passions and fuel political division, migration dramatizes some of the most profound and lasting questions of modern life – questions about national identity and belonging, technology and state surveillance, the nature of globalization, and the meaning and sanctity of the family and human life.

Moderator

Claudia Holzner, University of Utah

Ieva Jusionyte, Harvard University

Kit Myers, UC Merced
