On Thursday, September 28, 2017, the Institute hosted five eminent scholars of immigration at the Oxford Road Auditorium on Emory's main campus. From understanding contemporary migration patterns to the United States (including the Latinx, Asian and African Diasporas) to understanding how current debates over immigrationan change political identities and voting behavior, this program explored the diversity of contemporary US immigration and how it is politicized.
