Debating Immigration

Dr. Carol Swain at The City Club of Cleveland

Carol M. Swain, Ph.D., professor of political science and professor of law at Vanderbilt University, will speak about her newest book Debating Immigration, a collection of 18 original essays that explore the nuances of contemporary immigration and citizenship affecting the U.S. and Europe, at noon on Friday, June 22, 2007, at The City Club of Cleveland.


Swain comes to The City Club during a time when the nation is debating the Senate’s plan to overhaul immigration laws. She asserts that undocumented immigration has an especially adverse affect on minorities in this country.

Swain is the author of Black Faces, Black Interests: The Representation of African Americans in Congress, which received the 1994 Woodrow Wilson prize for the best book published in the U.S. on government, politics, or international affairs and The New White Nationalism in America: Its Challenge to Integration, nominated for a Pulitzer Prize.

Swain has published articles in both popular and academic journals and anthologies, including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and The Chronicle of Higher Education. Her media appearances include
BBC Radio, CNN Talk Back, The News Hour with Jim Lehrer, ABC News, Fox News Live, and NPR.

Swain, who never attended high school, earned a high school equivalency diploma, a B.A. from Roanoke College, an M.A. from Virginia Tech, a Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and an M.L.S from Yale Law School.
