THE LOW DOWN:

  • In this week's¬†Low Down¬†podcast, we feature a lecture Professor Robert Young gave at the¬†Columbia Global Center in Amman. Young offers a historical perspective on an issue facing today‚Äôs society: migration. Young, who specializes in the history of literature of post-colonialism, applies this knowledge to the tragic case of German philosopher Walter Benjamin,¬†drawing parallels between his quest for asylum and the refugee and immigration issues facing today‚Äôs society. Take a listen.
