The conference will feature Jean Beaman, author of the recently released book, Citizen Outsider: Children of North African Immigrants in France, and Min Zhou, author of The Asian American Achievement Paradox. The convening will include multiple faculty and student panel discussions concerning racism, immigration policies, and citizenship in a global environment where so much attention is being paid to citizenship, marginalization, and one’s “documentation” status. The conference will also feature a conversation between Jason Carter, Chair of The Carter Center, and Noel King, host of Morning Edition and Up First Correspondent, Planet Money National Public Radio, on immigration and human rights.
A reception with light hors d'oeuvres will be held at Penn Pavilion from 4:15 pm - 6:00 pm including a formal reading and book signing with Jean Beaman.
The event is free and open to the public. Please register here to attend.
