CONVERSATION PROJECT - The Space Between Us Immigrants, Refugees, and Oregon
The Library Multicultural Arts & Events Program, in partnership with the University Foundation, is pleased to present an Oregon Humanities Conversation Project:
The Space Between Us: Immigrants, Refugees, and Oregon / with Manuel Padilla
Global displacement is on the rise, thanks to intractable conflicts, economics, and climate change. Oregonians have and will continue to see the results of international migration in our neighborhoods. In this conversation, Manuel Padilla, who has worked with refugees in Haiti, Chad, and Washington, DC, asks participants to consider questions of uprootedness, hospitality, identity, perception, and integration and how we might build more informed, responsive, resilient, and vibrant communities.
