RGL 101 (Lewis Hall auditorium), University of Southern California

We are fortunate to have an exciting group of speakers for a faculty seminar on the changing immigration coverage by the media, the changing border context, and what this means for national politics.

Three speakers have agreed to share their ideas:

Michael Dear, Professor of Geography, will discuss his explorations on both sides of the US-Mexico border, including his time with the Minutemen.

Roberto Suro, Professor in the Annenberg School for Communication, and former director of the Pew Hispanic Center, will discuss his provocative new Brookings
report, “Media and the Immigration Debate.”

Dan  Schnur will serve as respondent,adding his considerable insight on the changing ways that immigration has been treated politically.He is the new director of the Unruh Institute of Politics at USC, and previously served as a professional communications manager in political campaigns and for elected officials.
