Social Justice, Race, DACA and the Muslim Ban

Talk by José-Antonio Orosco

Tuesday, February 27, 2018 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM

This event is FREE and open to the public! Dinner will be provided! Copies of Professor Orosco's book will be available for sale and there will be an opportunity to meet and greet during the book signing.

In his talk, Professor Orosco will discuss his book, Toppling the Melting Pot: Immigrants and Pluralistic Democracy in American Pragmatism, which explores the historical origins of the "melting pot" metaphor, and explains why the melting pot is not an adequate vision of a multicultural society. He will then discuss current immigration issues, such as the Muslim Ban and challenges to DACA, and how these policies are the result of the foundation of immigration policy in the United States.

Professor José-Antonio Orosco is an associate professor of Philosophy in Oregon State University's School of History, Philosophy and Religion. He is a founding member of OSU Faculty and Staff for Peace and Justice, a co-founder of the Anarres Project for Alternative Futures, and president of the OSU Chapter of the American Association of University Professors.
