IAS Public Lecture: A Refugee for Scholars: Contemporary Challenges in Historical Perspective

November 3 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

The History Working Group is a member-led initiative that mobilized in early 2017 in response to President Trump’s executive orders banning travel and immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries. The group produced a series of articles and an exhibition documenting how the Institute for Advanced Study responded to similar challenges in the past, finding its ethos as a place of refuge and active engagement with the world.

This event will highlight the group’s work and discuss the importance of the Institute’s role in the world today.
