Immigration History Research Center Presents

University of Minnesota Immigrant Stories

4/27/17, 12:00 PM

About this event

Join the Immigration History Research Center (IHRC) as we screen several digital stories created by students at the University of Minnesota.

Immigrant Stories helps recent immigrants and refugees create digital stories: brief videos with images, text, and audio about a personal experience. The IHRC shares and preserves these digital stories for future generations through the IHRC Archives, the Minnesota Digital Library, and the Digital Public Library of America.

Over 215 stories representing more than 45 different communities are now part of the Immigrant Stories Collection. A National Endowment for the Humanities grant is now helping us collect stories with our story-making website: http://immigrantstories.umn.edu.

This event is sponsored by: Department of Sociology, Race, Indigeneity, Gender & Sexuality Studies Initiative, Chicano/Latino Studies, Immigration Response Team, Youth Studies, Deparment of History, Institute for Global Studies, Human Rights Program, Asian American Studies Program, and the Center for New Americans.
