Room 210, Emerson Hall

According to the 2018 World Migration Report, there will be 405 million international migrants by 2050. Amid climate change, geopolitical instabilities, and authoritarian nationalism, borders have become crucial sites of both proliferating cruelty and outpourings of solidarity. Many of us are asking: How did we get here? And what can we do? This series brings together scholars and activists from multiple fields who can help us confront these questions with humanistic sensibility and depth of knowledge.
