Travel and Language: Narrating the Immigrant Experience

About This Event


This one day conference covers the topic of moving communities from a multidisciplinary scope: socio-linguistics, history, cultural studies, ethnic and media studies, and performance. We talk not only about narratives of arrival, but also about narratives of deportation and re-integration in communities of initial departure. Highlighting contributions of students of Latino descent, the gathering also features a Poster Board Presentation, and reception.
