'Ask A Historian' Forum Organized Around Topical National Issues
October 17, 2017
At an "Ask a Historian" forum, seven UC Davis history professors provided historical context for a wide range of topics including immigration, Confederate statues and Islamophobia.
Should Confederate statues come down? Are today’s neo-Nazis like the Nazis of the Third Reich? What about immigration, refugees and building a border wall? Seven UC Davis historians will address these and other topical questions during an Oct. 18, 2017, campus forum.

Four UC Davis economists have joined forces with colleagues across the country on a new online publication, EconoFact, to bring fact-based analysis to the national debate on economic and social policy issues.
As President Donald Trump signed his executive order Friday to halt immigration from several Muslim-majority countries, the UC Davis Institute for Social Sciences hosted a conference titled "Documenting the Immigrant: U.S. Immigration Policy Past, Present, and Future."
In the College of Letters and Science magazine released in December 2016, we featured faculty and graduate students who provided expertise and insight into the big public issues of the day, from the parenting transgender kids, the political divide and immigration to climate change and poverty.
A UC Davis sociologist will study how schools adapt to a sharp increase in the number of immigrant families, and he plans to develop interventions to help low-income kids who may have trouble catching up to their peers.
