TU's Cadenhead-Settle Memorial Lecture: "From Settlers to Refugees: Migrants in the Modern World"

Feb 16, 2016

On this edition of ST, we speak with the two Michigan State University professors who will be jointly delivering the Cadenhead-Settle Memorial Lecture in History tonight (Monday the 15th) on the TU campus. The lecture is free to the public; it begins at 7:30pm in Helmerich Hall. Our guests are Lewis H. Siegelbaum and Leslie Page Moch, who are also the co-authors of "Broad Is My Native Land: Repertoires and Regimes of Migration in Russia's Twentieth Century" (Cornell University Press). They'll give an address tonight entitled "From Settlers to Refugees: Migrants in the Modern World." As noted of this address at the TU website: "Moch and Siegelbaum will discuss the establishment of European settler societies in Africa, Australia, and the Americas in the 17th and 18th centuries as well as Middle Eastern refugees as they escape war zones and famine in the early 21st century. The historians will evaluate the shifting power of repertoires and regimes between mobile peoples' plans and desires as well as state and employer efforts to control those who attempt to relocate."
