HumIn Focus: Making Home: Migration, Mobility, Hospitality

These days, everyone is talking about immigration and how to manage it. As it has many times in the past, immigration has become a political issue. But is migration, moving in search of a better life, a normal part of the human condition or a human right? As a settler nation which was built both on the forced removal of native peoples and on subsequent waves of immigrants, do people in the U.S. have special obligations regarding immigrants and refugees? In this episode, humanities scholars at Penn State reflect on migration, mobility and the ethics of hospitality so as to better understand the context of the debate on immigration and refugees in the US and around the world.
