Halting Exchange: The Travel Ban’s Cultural Effects

From the Stanford Live website: “Inspired by the Kronos Quartet’s performance Music For Change: The Banned Countries, Stanford Live is partnering with the Hamid and Christina Moghadam Program in Iranian Studies to bring together artists and Stanford foreign relations experts to discuss the impacts of the 2017 Executive Orders that limit travel from Muslim-majority countries to the US. How are these orders affecting the institutions that provide much needed cross-cultural exchange and understanding—from higher education to formal diplomacy—and how do we move forward? Professor Abbas Milani (Director, Iranian Studies) will lead the panel conversation, including Ambassador Michael McFaul (Director, Freeman Spogli Institute), Professor Martha Crenshaw (Senior Fellow, Freeman Spogli Institute), and David Harrington (Artistic Director, Kronos Quartet).”
