The DeZIM Institute is pleased to welcome the renowned sociologist Prof. Dr. Nancy Foner from City University of New York (CUNY) as a DeZIM-Fellow in Berlin.  

We will take the opportunity to talk to her in person about her latest book One Quarter of the Nation: Immigration and Transformation of America

In her book, Nancy Foner shows how immigrants and their children have transformed the American experience in profound and far-reaching ways. She discusses how they have rejuvenated urban and rural communities, strengthened the economy, and touched virtually every facet of American culture from food to novels and popular music.  

We are delighted to welcome Prof. Dr. Gökce Yurdakul, Georg Simmel Professor of Diversity and Social Conflict at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, to comment on the book. Author and journalist Annika Brockschmidt (ZEIT Online and Tagesspiegel) will host the event. DeZIM Director Prof. Dr. Naika Foroutan will welcome our guests.

Please note that the DeZIM Institute is currently not barrier-free!
