The workshop Equality in Immigration will explore what realizing equality demands in the realm of immigration. The questions discussed may include: what is the connection between immigration policy and racial inequality? Under what circumstances might immigration enhance inequality? Can the value of equality explain the right to emigrate? What might it mean to relate to immigrants as equals? How might insights from the Marxist tradition of political thought be fruitfully brought to bear on issues of migration? Does equality require that noncitizens be given voting rights?

The workshop is a pre-read format and will take place over two nonconsecutive days. To RSVP, contact Daniel Sharp at [email protected]. The schedule is below.
