Birthright Citizenship in an Evolving Political Landscape


Birthright citizenship, seen for more than a century as a bedrock American right, has become a hot-button immigration issue. In this panel discussion, we bring together historians, scholars and journalists to discuss how and why birthright citizenship has evolved, from Reconstruction to immigration policy today. Together, we'll  explore its impact on the lives of American families over time.

This program is a partnership with the Scholars Strategy Network.

This program is free but RSVP is required. Seating will be on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Members at the Contributor level and above are able to reserve seats.

If you are a Member and would like to reserve seats, or are interested in membership, contact us at or by phone at 646-518-3007.
