On Saturday, October 20, at 7:00 pm, the Swenson Swedish Immigration Research Center will host Dr. Donna Gabaccia presenting the 23rd annual O. Fritiof Ander Lecture in Immigration History. Her talk is entitled, “The Freedom to Move: Immigrants and Natives 1776-present.”

Her lecture will focus on immigration policy and histories of groups that have been forced to move or not allowed to move, providing a different way of thinking about immigration policy and notions of liberty.  Her talk deals with some of the fundamental aspects of immigration history.

The O. Fritiof Ander Lecture in Immigration History is presented annually by a prominent scholar in the field of immigration studies. It is named after Dr. O. Fritiof Ander, a leading immigration historian who taught history at Augustana 1930-1968.
