This February, three Penn professors met on campus to discuss two of the most critical issues facing the world: immigration and global inequality. The panel was part of Penn Arts and Sciences' continued commitment to promoting civil discourse, and was a precursor to upcoming BEN Talks. Modeled after the popular TED Talks, BEN Talks give our acclaimed faculty 10 minutes each to deliver their “ideas worth sharing,” bringing to life the innovative vision and future of Penn Arts and Sciences. Michael Jones-Correa is a professor of political science who studies immigration and the Latino experience in America; Emilio Parrado, Dorothy Swaine Thomas Professor and Chair of Sociology, studies on immigration and its interaction with other demographic and social processes; and Tukufu Zuberi, Lasry Family Professor of Race Relations, Sociology, and Africana Studies, studies race, African, and African diaspora populations. Watch excerpts of their presentations below.
