The Mahindra Humanities Center in collaboration with the Office of the President of Harvard University presents the Tanner Lectures on Human Value by Masha Gessen.
How Do We Talk About Migration?
Wednesday, April 3—Thursday, April 4, 2019
Lecture 1. How We Think About Migration
Lecture 2. Some Ideas for Talking About Migration
Our current ways of thinking, telling stories, and creating policy are inadequate for the task of addressing the current worldwide crisis of human displacement. What assumptions need to be questioned, and what questions need to be reframed to make possible a meaningful and productive conversation about migration.
