    New Destinations for Latina/o Migration: Three Case Studies

    5:00 p.m., Tues., Nov. 10, 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.

    Directions and parking: Pass through the main campus entrance on Stewart Street just East of Brown Street and follow the signs to visitor parking. Stop at the visitor center, and an attendant will issue you a parking pass and direct you to a parking lot. 


    Latino Americans: 500 Years of History has been made possible through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association.
