The Institute on Race and Justice is pleased to host the second Faculty Research Seminar, featuring Dr. Adam Hosein, Associate Professor of Philosophy and Religion in the College of Social Sciences and Humanities, Northeastern University. Dr. Hosein will be giving a talk entitled “Inequality and Insecurity—A Discussion of the Travel Ban” Please read the description below provided by Dr. Hosein as a preview of this discussion:
As a candidate, Donald Trump announced his plan to create a ‘complete and total shutdown on the entry of Muslims into the United States’, and as President he signed into law the ‘travel ban’. This event will be a discussion of the arguments in Trump v. Hawaii and elsewhere about whether the ban is consistent with respect for equality and whether it is essential to national security.
This event is part of a series of discussions that will highlight the work of faculty engaged in race and social justice research on campus and provide an opportunity for intellectual dialogue on these important issues.
