Jessica Tanner, ‘Mapping Prostitution in Nineteenth-Century Paris’

This lecture will be presented by Jessica Tanner, an assistant professor of French at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

This talk will question those assumptions by exploring the extent to which difficulties in Muslim integration reflect common challenges among all immigrant communities and explore the ramifications of thinking about the Muslim community in either religious or immigration terms.
