Join Tufts alumni, parents, and friends for a reception and trip back to the classroom with Sol Gittleman, Alice and Nathan Gantcher University Professor Emeritus. In his lecture, Sol will explore issues of God, immigration, race, and American voters, taking you through a semester-long course in just 50 minutes.

More on Professor Gittleman’s talk:

Contrary to what we like to believe, immigrants have rarely had an easy time becoming Americans. From the moment the Pilgrims planted a foot on Plymouth Rock, they began having questions about who was coming next. Religion played a major role, but so did color, race, and class. Those issues continued to play a prominent role in American history, as the frontier moved west. The doors never shut—until the second decade of the twentieth century. In the recent national election, immigration was on everyone’s mind. Let’s connect the dots and learn something about our nation.
