The Borders of Truth: Misinformation in the Immigration Debate

Wednesday, February 24, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Wednesday, Feb. 24, 6 p.m.

In this livestreamed event, Professor Sophia Jordán Wallace will explore how misinformation, myths, and media stereotypes have hobbled our ability to talk meaningfully about immigration, and made immigration reform in Congress more difficult.

Wallace is an associate professor in the political science department at the University of Washington. She is the director of the Washington Institute for the Study of Inequality and Race (WISIR).

The presentation is part of Humanities Washington’s initiative “Rebuilding Democracy,” a deep dive into the state of democracy, voting, and civic engagement. Presented in partnership with stations KUOW (Seattle), KPBX (Spokane), and Northwest Public Broadcasting (statewide); and produced with the support of the Mellon Foundation and the Federation of State Humanities Councils.
