International adoptions in America

koreaAlthough international adoption has become a commonplace practice in the United States, many Americans know very little about how or why it began. On Mar. 1 at noon at the Boisi Center, Associate Professor of History Arissa Oh, author of the book, To Save the Children of Korea: The Cold War Origins of International Adoption, will examine the rise of international adoption, which began systematically in the aftermath of the Korean War. In her talk, titled “Save the Children: Religion, Politics, and International Adoptions in America,” Oh will discuss the role of religion in U.S. international adoption, both past and present. RSVP required. Sponsor: Boisi Center for Religion and American Public Life.
