Dissecting Discrimination: The Living Legacy of Migration, Race, and Politics

Thursday, August 12, 2021 at 1:00pm

Virtual Event

Migration flows have been entangled with race for centuries. In this webinar, Cornell faculty discuss the relationship between human migration and race-based discrimination. From the earliest forced movement of enslaved peoples to nations built on excluding or extracting from particular racial-ethnic groups, we highlight histories of colonialism and conquest and examine the ways in which these are perpetuated today. As human migration continues to rise—now reaching its highest point in history—it is urgent that we examine the injustices that race-based rules and norms perpetuate on newcomers and longstanding citizens alike.

This discussion is co-sponsored by eCornell and the Migrations initiative.
