Off Campus Location
The federal response to immigration has shifted under the Biden administration, but executive orders alone cannot undo the historical stigma, violence and exploitation suffered by immigrant communities. What stories, hopes and continued activism should define this political moment? Join us for a conversation about immigration rhetoric, policy enforcement and possibility in the United States.

This conversation is the first of NCID's series — Forgotten Bodies: Conversations on Research and Recognition. This series elevates research that inspires or demands new paradigms of human dignity. The title is borrowed from poet Claudia Rankine’s declaration, “I am invested in keeping present the forgotten bodies.” Each conversation provides models of relevant, necessary research that resists past patterns of exclusion and expands our sense of community. Authors will discuss recent projects, the process of writing as a political act and their vision for informing activism, policy and practice.
