Georgia's Undocumented Workforce: Dilemmas in Law, Economy and Society

September 7-8, KSU Center, Kennesaw State University
CONTACT: http://www.kennesaw.edu/burruss_inst/conference/

Kennesaw State University invites you to attend a multidisciplinary conference and workshop on undocumented workers in Georgia. The conference/workshop will be designed to be of benefit to scholars and practitioners in the fields of immigration, governance, economics, law, history, and sociology. Conference proceedings will be eligible for publication through the KSU Press as an edited volume. Conference registration includes meals.

Conference organizers seek to bring together a diverse group of scholars and interested citizens to open a civil dialogue on the often contentious issue of immigration. Our chief purposes are to inform by offering a forum for the presentation of research in this area and to begin a process of discussion that may lead to greater understanding. At best, the dialogue begun here may contribute to the crafting of policy suggestions based on research and reflection. To that end, round table sessions including paper presenters and keynote speakers will be scheduled in addition to normal panels.

Lecture: Rethinking Migration: The US Experience in Global Context
September 8, 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM, Wyndham Midtown Atlanta
