Emilio Parrado New Realities of Latin American Migration to the U.S.Penn Lightbulb Cafe World Cafe Live, 3025 Walnut St.

Latin American migration to the United States grew very rapidly during the last two decades of the 20th century. Since then, the 2007 economic recession together with stronger border enforcement and deportation policies are having a visible impact on the dynamics of the flow and even the size of the immigrant population in local areas. Professor of Sociology Emilio Parrado will highlight current demographic realities that are essential to understand and evaluate proposed changes to immigration policy.

Expert faculty from the University of Pennsylvania shed light on their research in the arts, humanities, and social sciences at the Penn Lightbulb Café. It's an evening of engaging, stimulating conversation, with a Q&A session following each talk.

HAIKU: The Humanities and the Arts in the Integrated Knowledge University Penn Museum, Rainey Auditorium

September 12-13, 2014

What do the humanities and the arts have to offer contemporary efforts to integrate distinct bodies of knowledge within the research university? How will the humanities and the arts retain their specificity within this climate of integration, and is it even important that they do so? What do creative practitioners have to offer the realm of research and teaching within the university? And how does the mandate for knowledge integration intersect with other key emphases within the contemporary university, such as the global and the digital? Please join us for two days of lively multidisciplinary discussions and performances about the future of the humanities within the creative research university.

This event is free and open to the public.
