Identity and the State: Immigration, Race and Belonging after the US Election
Monday, January 16
Nexus Lounge, 12th Floor
OISE, 252 Bloor St. W.
The recent US election has destabilized many expectations of the democratic liberal state. Most concerning for some is the insistence of the President-elect on legitimizing race-based and anti-immigrant policies as a defining feature of the new administration. This forum, jointly sponsored by the Centre for Ethics and the Department of Social Justice Education, invites an interdisciplinary panel to consider issues of immigration, race and belonging as we anticipate the inauguration of Donald Trump.
