‘Migration Narratives’ Panel Discussion and Reception
November 3, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Migration Narratives highlights four projects undertaken by recent alumni, graduate students and undergraduate students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to consider the local impacts of global migration. The exhibition considers both the common threads that connect migrants around the globe and the uniqueness of each person’s narrative through multimedia interviews, oral histories, photographs and textiles.
Divided by the Sea chronicles the experiences of both refugees and community members in Reggio Calabria, a small Italian city caught in the crosshairs of the Mediterranean refugee crisis. New Roots is a digital archive of oral histories from Latin American migrants to North Carolina and North Carolinians that have worked for their integration. Home in a New Place follows one immigrant family as they adapt and reshape Lao traditions in the small town of Morganton, North Carolina. Lastly, Carolina Connections provides a glimpse into the lives of current UNC students who were forced to flee the Syrian civil war.
This event is free and open to the public. Parking is available in the McCauley Deck underneath the FedEx Global Education Center starting at 5 p.m.
More information about the exhibition is available on the UNC Global website.
