Pitt's Humanities Center is hosting a lecture titled "How Can the Stateless Be Free? The Concept of Liberty in a World of Porous Borders." John Christman, a Penn State professor and director of the university's Humanities Institute, will speak. His lecture will shed new light on the complex concept of social freedom as it applies to those whose political, economic or social circumstances have moved them to leave (or flee) their home culture and seek escape, protection and ultimately relocation in new and reconstructed circumstances.
