Rethinking Immigration in the Age of Global Vertigo

The interdisciplinary Migration Studies Project is pleased to announce that the fall semester Distinguished Lecture will be given by Marcelo M. Suárez-Orozco, Ph.D., this evening at 5 p.m. in Foster Auditorium. He will be speaking on "Rethinking Immigration in the Age of Global Vertigo".

For more about the work of Dr. Suárez-Orozco, the brief bio that appears on the flyer is included below. Additionally, you can find his webpage here.

Marcelo Suárez-Orozco’s research is on the areas of immigration, globalization, and education, with a focus on how immigrant families, especially youth, adapt to change. His books have examined a broad set of empirical and theoretical aspects of global migration. Among his works are the award-winning books Learning a New Land (Harvard), Transformations (Stanford), Central American Refugees (Stanford) and the edited volume Latinos: Remaking America (UC Press). Before moving to New York University, he taught at Harvard. There, Dr. Suárez-Orozco’s appointments included the Victor S. Thomas Chair on Education and Culture and Member of the Executive Committee of the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies. He co-founded the Harvard Immigration Project with Carola Suárez-Orozco and co-directed the largest study ever funded in the history of the National Science Foundation’s Cultural Anthropology division—a study of Asian, Afro-Caribbean, and Latin American immigrant youth and families in American society. He is currently a Member of the School of Social Sciences, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton.
