NYU Migration Network Public Lecture Series (May)
The NYU Migration Network is launching a Public Conversation Series.
These public conversations will be held monthly in the spring of 2024, and each one will bring a prominent non-NYU scholar and/or artist who engages with questions of migration and mobility and an NYU scholar and/or artist who works on similar issues but from a different disciplinary perspective together into a public conversation.
The hope is to create a thought-provoking and cross-disciplinary conversation that can help us identify and refine broader approaches and vocabularies for addressing migration and mobility dynamics, histories, and stakes. In addition to opening a space to reflect on migration, the Public Conversation events will be structured to promote connection and community at NYU and beyond.
The public conversations will be held monthly in 2024, on occasional Thursdays, in the early evening, and each event will start with a short cocktail reception. The public conversation will run about an hour: it will begin with a short introduction of the speakers, followed by the public conversation about 40 minutes in which the NYU scholar will act as an interlocutor/discussant, and then a short 15 min question and answer period.
