Historian Keith David Watenpaugh of University of California-Davis will give the inaugural talk in this year’s Gordon F. Henderson Speakers’ Series on Refugee History
Historian and Professor of Human Rights Studies Keith David Watenpaugh will launch this year’s Gordon F. Henderson Speakers’ Series on Refugee History with his talk “The Drowned, the Saved and the Forgotten: Genocide Survivors and the Foundations of Modern Humanitarianism,” on 15 September 2016 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. in Fauteux 570, 57, Louis Pasteur. All are welcome.
Refugee history series speakers will examine the historical emergence of the term “refugee” as a category in human history and contribute to our understanding of how the term has served as a legal, political, social, economic, and even criminal designation at various times and places. Events will be held monthly throughout the year and will be announced here, so stay tuned!
