"After the Last Border: Two Families and the Story of Refuge in America" by Dr. Jessica Goudeau

12:00-1:00pm ET
United States

Event Description

Join us for a dynamic “Meet the Author” conversation with Dr. Jessica Goudeau about her new book After the Last Border: Two Families and the Story of Refuge in America. This important book is an intimate look at the lives of two women — Mu Naw, a Christian from Myanmar, and Hasna, a Muslim from Syria — and their personal stories are situated within the larger history of the evolution of modern refugee resettlement in the U.S. The book reveals much about America’s changing attitudes toward refugees and ever-shifting refugee policies, and their profound effect on human lives.


Participants are encouraged to read the book ahead of this conversation, as there will be an opportunity to ask questions. Options for purchasing the book can be found on Dr. Goudeau’s website here.
