LEWISBURG, Pa. — Rey Koslowski, professor of political science at Rutgers University, will give the lecture, "International Migration, Border Control and Homeland Security in the Information Age," Thursday, Nov. 11, at 7:30 p.m. in the Forum of the Elaine Langone Center at Bucknell University.
The lecture, which is open to the public without charge, is the second in the International Focus Year lecture series, "Empire, Immigration and the War on Terrorism," sponsored by the international relations department.
Koslowski is director of the Center for Global Change and Governance research program on border control and homeland security.
His recent publications include Global Human Smuggling: Comparative Perspectives, and Migrants and Citizens: Demographic Change in the European States System.
He also is the author of "Human Migration and the Conceptualization of Pre-modern World Politics," in International Studies Quarterly.
"This lecture series examines the appropriate role of the United States in the world system today," according to Steve Stamos, professor of international relations at Bucknell.
"Koslowski will explore the efforts of the United States and other advanced countries to selectively control migration using new information technologies in order to shape flows of human capital to the needs of information technology-driven, globalizing economies."
Speakers in this series will explore issues such as U.S.-Mexican immigration policy and the Patriot Act (Samuel Schmidt, March 31); and the future of the U.S. economy (James Crotty, April 21).
