Health inspection of immigrants in the 19th century.

Migrant Lives, Migrant Narratives

November 1, 6-8 p.m. in the Scandinavian Cultural Center

Join us for an interdisciplinary conversation on migrant narratives across time and space–from Norway to the Isthmus of Tehuantepec in Mexico, from the 1800s to the early 2000s–with the goal of exploring the universality of these experience as well as their historical, cultural, and social particularities.

The roundtable will feature seven faculty members discussing narratives of migration throughout time and place. Panelists include: Adela RamosJenny James and Wendy Call from the Department of English, Rebekah Mergenthal from the Department of History, and Troy Storfjell and Claudia Bergson from the Department of Languages and Literatures.

This event is sponsored by the Department of English, the Department of Languages and Literatures, the Department of History and the Svare-Toven Endowment.
