The Migration, Mobility and Immobility (MMI) project is hosting a keynote address, "Refugee Rights at a Crossroads," by Becca Heller, founder and director of the International Refugee Assistance Project and MacArthur Genius Award recipient.
This event will take place on Thursday, October 17, in the Blackwell Ballroom. A catered reception will begin at 4 p.m., followed by the keynote at 4:30 p.m. The event will include a Q&A session moderated by Professor Hasan Kwame Jeffries (Department of History). To indicate your attendance and to submit a question for the speaker, MMI asks that you please RSVP by October 7, 2019.
Heller's keynote address is part of MMI's Moving Subjects: Migration, Mobility and Immobility Week, a series of events that highlight the transformative power of cross-disciplinary methods and creative practices in addressing critical local and global challenges — from global migration and transnational and local mobility to the spatial and social isolation of communities and individuals due poverty, social discrimination, closed borders, incarceration, disability, or statelessness, among others. All events are free and open to the public.
