Please join us on Thursday, April 18, from noon to 1 pm in the Yosemite Classroom (1st floor of the Library) for “What’s My Research?” featuring Drs. Rahim Khoie (Electrical and Computer Engineering) and Laura Gutiérrez (History). Dr. Khoie will discuss the feasibility of renewable energy, emission reduction strategies, and carbon capture as tools to mitigate the negative impacts of global warming and climate change. The focus of the talk will be on the carbon neutrality of electricity generation from renewables, and electrification of transportation.

Dr. Gutiérrez will discuss the history of deportation to Mexico in the twentieth century and the post-deportation experience of migrants. Forced removal of migrants is often framed as something that happens during “exceptional” moments, such as the mass repatriation of ethnic Mexicans during the Great Depression. As archival research shows, however, deportation has served as a defining strategy to manage labor and exert control over the border, while returning Mexican migrants came to be viewed as economic, political, and health threats in their home country.

A light lunch will be served.
