Workshop with "From Here" film director Christina Antonakos-Wallace and film subjects Tania Mattos and Sonny Singh.

 

The question of who belongs is at the heart of the political divide in the United States, and the European Union. In this interactive workshop, participants will dig into the immigration history of Germany and the US, media representations of immigrants, and make connections to their own stories. Together, we will develop strategies to build solidarity for immigrant and racial justice, and work towards pluralistic democracy in our community.

 

This event is presented by the Humanities Research Institute and the Illinois Global Institute at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign as part of the "The Global and its Worlds" initiative. Co-sponsored by the Women and Gender in Global Perspectives Program.
