WGBH highlights Karen Jacobsen’s public talk on migration

On December 26, 2019, a WGBH article by Annie Shreffler and Lauren Jo Alicandro highlighted Karen Jacobsen’s panel discussion at the Boston Public Library in April as one of six local public talks from 2019 that introduced new perspectives and context surrounding key events from this year. Karen discussed migration around the world and argued that immigration should not be seen as a threat. She pointed out that, for example, the United Nations definition of a migrant only encompasses a fraction of the global population.  Other highlighted talks cover topics including the opioid crisis and the Slave Trade in New England.
