Dean's Seminar on Immigration in American Life

The Dean’s Seminar on Immigration in American Life

PSC 31150 2TU, #90136, 3 credits
Tuesdays, 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
 

Classes begin September 1st
The Colin Powell School announces the Dean’s Seminar on Immigration.  This seminar, led by dean Vincent Boudreau and open to a select group of CCNY alumni and current students, is designed as a semester-long exploration of the role that immigration has played in American life. It is also designed to mobilize the tremendous, intergenerational expertise of our faculty, our students and our alumni around the question of immigration.  Each week, an immigration expert from the Colin Powell School faculty will deliver a public lecture, preceded by a more intensive discussion with students and alumni registered for the class.  Apart from class discussions and public lectures, class activities will include readings, visits to important sites outside the classroom to deepen our knowledge of the immigrant experience, and an exciting oral history project designed to document and preserve the relationship between immigration, CCNY and the making of America. 
 

Alumni, for more information or to apply for a position in the class, please contact Dee Dee Mozeleski at 212.650.7396 or email dmozeleski@ccny.cuny.edu
