IMMIGRANT INTEGRATION IN LOS ANGELES: Crafting a Story, Building an Institution, Working for Change

A talk by MANUEL PASTOR, USC

Sponsored by the Center for Ideas and Society, the CHASS California Futures Initiative, and the Immigration Research Group at UC Riverside

Tuesday, November 9
Noon-1pm at INTS 1111
CHASS Interdisciplinary Building, UCR

Please join us as we inaugurate our speaker series--for the Immigration Research Group at UCR as well as the CHASS California Futures Initiative--with the distinguished Manuel Pastor, Professor of Geography and American Studies & Ethnicity at USC.

In the last two years, Professor Pastor and a series of colleagues have tried to build a new Center for the Study of Immigrant Integration at USC. He will talk a bit about the research, including community-based focus groups, that prompted the Center and will discuss in more detail the process of building the center, including the intersection of the Center's research with various immigrant and civic groups.

Pastor will draw lessons both for a more inclusive approach to immigrants in metropolitan areas and for the ways in which universities can positively contribute to such an approach.
