In her talk, "Walking with Latinos in Dayton," Sister Maria Stacy, director of Hispanic Catholic Ministry in Dayton and a Sister of Notre Dame, will discuss the history of the presence of Latinos in the Dayton area, the current challenges, the work that her office does, and the collaboration with the University of Dayton in their work. In her talk, "Latina Literary Activism," Tereza Szeghi (Department of English) will discuss some of the ways Latina writers are using literature as a means of advocating for Latina/o human rights.

New Destinations for Latina/o Migration: Three Case Studies
5:00 p.m., Tues., Nov. 10, 2016, Science Center Auditorium SC 114
Three immigration scholars from the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Social Work will present research and lead a discussion on how some of the small U.S. cities and towns that have become "new destinations" for Latina/o migration have welcomed and/or excluded recent migrants. Miranda Hallett will discuss the new cultural frames, social boundaries, and ideas about racial and cultural difference that she observed while conducting fieldwork in small town Arkansas. Jamie Longazel will discuss how prevailing ideologies about race and class enabled a 'politics of divide and conquer' to take root in Hazleton, Pennsylvania. And Theo Majka will discuss how the Welcome Dayton initiative came to be and how it represents an alternative mode of integration that focuses on changing institutions rather than individuals.
