Bucknell University will host its annual Constitution Day and Citizenship Day lecture on Thursday, Sept. 24. Duke University scholar Noah Pickus will deliver the talk "Immigration, Citizenship & Constitutional Attachment" at 7 p.m. in the Forum of the Elaine Langone Center.

Pickus is associate provost and senior adviser at Duke University, where he is also Nannerl O. Keohane director at the Kenan Institute for Ethics and associate research professor for the Sanford School of Public Policy. At the Kenan Institute, he leads programs in business ethics. His writing covers issues of immigration, citizenship and national identity. Pickus has advised the United States Bureau of Citizenship & Immigration Services, the Pew Charitable Trusts, the Smith-Richardson Foundation and other public and private organizations.

He has provided commentary to national media and written for the National Journal, The Claremont Review of Books and the Center for Immigration Studies. Peter Schuck of the Yale Law School describes Pickus 2005 book, True Faith and Allegiance: Immigration & American Civic Nationalism, "a rare combination of lofty ideals, careful analysis, and practical reformism."

Pickus holds a doctorate from Princeton University and has held fellowships from the Thomas J. Watson Foundation, the A.W. Mellon Foundation, and the H.B. Earhart Foundation.

The event is free and open to the public.

About Constitution Day and Citizenship Day
In recognition of the Sept. 17, 1787, adoption of the U.S. Constitution, the federal government asks any school or college that receives federal funding to observe the anniversary of this historic event. Bucknell marks the occasion annually with a lecture on or close to Sept. 17. The lecture is funded by the Putterman Lecture Fund and organized by Bucknell's legal studies program.
