Constitution Week: Immigration and Constitution Lunch Discussion

Constitution Week: Immigration and Constitution Lunch Discussion

Tuesday’s celebration of Constitution Week includes a discussion on the United States Constitution and Immigration. Georgia College’s Drs. James Daria, Assistant Professor, Department of Government and Sociology, and Amir Moheet, Coverdell Visiting Scholar will be discussing their knowledge and experiences of immigration and the reality of immigration in this country.

 Amir Moheet, Ph.D. in Political Science,  is currently teaching a course on global migration at GCSU. His Global Migration course explores substantive public policy questions of human mobility, including the role that international law, violence and war, citizenship, anti-immigrant politics, and racism play in producing policy outcomes across the world. Emphasizing the normative aspects of policy, the course centers the causes and consequences of migration policy through empirical and theoretical investigations that bring to bear broader ethical implications for democracy, society, and migrant reform. 

 James Daria, Ph.D.  is a cultural anthropologist specializing in issues of migration, race, and labor across the U.S.-Mexican border. He is currently working on a book about indigenous Mexican farmworkers picking our food under conditions of modern slavery. At GCSU Dr. Daria teaches a number of classes on migrant, refugee, and human rights issues. His research interests include Im/migration, Farm Labor, Popular Music & Culture, and Mexico & Latin America. 

Come join us at 12 noon on Tuesday, September 21, for this lunch discussion to enjoy food and facts. 

Location: The Cultural Center (in Room 103 of The H.U.B. at Blackbridge Hall)
