In the weeks since taking office, the new administration rapidly moved through a series of executive orders, which left the nation\u0027s airports in chaos, spurred national protests, and brought broad, although not universal, rebuke from the judiciary. This talk will explore the legal underpinnings of the executive orders, how they violate the Constitution or federal statutes, and, most importantly, how future orders may survive legal challenge.\r\n\r\nJonah Eaton (’02), an attorney and specialist in refugee and asylum law at Philadelphia’s Nationalities Services Center, will draw on how anti-discrimination laws and Constitutional protections clash with longstanding judicial deference to the executive on matters of national security and immigration. Finally, Jonah will discuss how these orders effected immigrants and refugees attempting to come to the United States.\r\n\r\nSpecial thanks to all of our co-sponsors, which include the MSA, FFS, the Islamic Studies Department, the Peace and Conflict Studies Department, the Sociology and Anthropolgy Departments, SAO, ENLACE, Swarthmore Pre-Law Society, Undocumented/DACA Student Group, SPJP, Kehilah, Interfaith, Lang Center for Civic and Social Responsibility, WOCKA, and AMENA.\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"contact\"\u003eKatie Price, kprice1@swarthmore.edu, 61-328-7780\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"location\"\u003eScience Center : Science Center 101 - Chang Hou Hall\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"image\"\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"thumbnail\"\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"category\"\u003eAcademic Departments & Programs, Diversity, Intercultural Center, Interfaith, Lang Center, Lecture/Talk/ Reading/ Panel, Public Events\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"extrainfo\"\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"sponsor\"\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"opento\"\u003eThe Public\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"startdate\"\u003e02/28/2017\u003c/div\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"feedevent\"\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"title\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"http://calendar.swarthmore.edu/calendar/EventList.aspx?view=EventDetails&eventidn=15588&information_id=42498&type=&syndicate=syndicate\" target=\"blank\" \u003eExhibition: Take the Plunge: Works of Donna Jo Napoli and David Wiesner\u003c/a\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"regspaces\"\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"enddate\"\u003e05/07/2017\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"starttime\"\u003eAll Day\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"endtime\"\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"recurrence\"\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"description\"\u003e\u003cspan id=\"docs-internal-guid-56ab4024-3d45-8f99-f9e9-467a7ab780d7\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-size: 14px; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap; font-family: Arial;\"\u003eThis exhibition highlights the creation of the newly released work \u003c/span\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-style: italic; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap; font-size: 14px; font-family: Arial;\"\u003eFish Girl,\u003c/span\u003e\u003cspan style=\"vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap; font-size: 14px; font-family: Arial;\"\u003e the first graphic novel for both David Wiesner and Donna Jo Napoli.

History highlights a plantation past, and deeply held nationalist ideologies of mestizaje. Demographics draw a contested map on the proportions and definitions of whites, blacks, and mixed-race people on the island.  While contemporary politics gives us a different view, ongoing racial discrimination is undermining the advances the socialist revolution made toward achieving equality. \u003cbr /\u003e\r\n\u003cbr /\u003e\r\nIn this mosaic of history, politics and demography, this lecture will present an alternate angle on the complexity of racial meaning on the island by focusing on the intimate domains of family and partner choice. Families have remained the keystone of society during the current social and economic transformations in Cuba. In this context, we see Cubans enact everyday notions of race and color, self and other, in their family formation and reproductive choices. We will explore how their intimate decisions shape the present and future contours of race and race mixing on the island.\u003cbr /\u003e\r\n\u003cbr /\u003e\r\nNadine Fernandez, associate professor and department chair of Social Science at SUNY Empire State College, received her doctorate in cultural anthropology from the University of California, Berkeley.
