Citizenship, Immigration, and National Identity: Civic Education on the Sesquicentennial Anniversary of the 14th Amendment
October 17, 7:30pm
Knight Auditorium, Spurlock Museum

There are few domestic issues more central to the contemporary American political scene than the debates over immigration, citizenship and national identity. The birthright and naturalized citizenship debates over the 14th Amendment remain important to us 150 years later because they echo issues of race, national identity, and citizenship that are still with us, for all their change in form and context.
