Presented by Marie Lorraine Mallare-Jimenez, former San Francisco Immigrants' Rights Commissioner.
A few issues of the many that will be discussed in the this academic forum are: Why has immigration been a topic of perennial debate in the U.S.?
- What does the study of immigration reveal about U.S. history and which stories we tell about ourselves as people?
- How does inequality, the freedom to move, and access to citizenship have its roots in the colonial period?
- How did the "era of exclusion" change Americans' ideas about belonging, citizenship and labor?
- How is the U.S. refugee resettlement policy shaped by U.S. international relations? Undocumented immigrants and immigrants rights? Border wall, border policing, and post- 9/11 America?
