Suketu Mehta - This Land Is Our Land: An Immigrant's Manifesto

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, June 11, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Mehta is the award-winning author of Pulitzer-finalist Maximum City, an associate professor of journalism at NYU, and an immigrant. Born in India, he grew up in New York City, and his personal experience grounds this insightful examination of the explosive issue of immigration. Drawing on his years of reporting around the world, he shows that people are being displaced at an increasingly rapid pace due to climate change, violence, and the disruptive legacy of colonialism. While many in the West fear this human tidal wave, Mehta argues that it’s exactly that fear of immigration—rather than the immigrants themselves—that is destructive. As his many accounts of newly settled individuals proves, immigrants enrich their adopted homelands in countless ways.
