Center for Refugee & Immigrant Success - Brown Bag Discussion
In the third Brown Bag Lunch for the Center for Refugee & Immigrant Success (CRIS), Jeff Karem, Chair and Professor from the Department of English will present: The Stories We Tell: An Overview of Immigrant and Refugee Literature in America.
This presentation will explore how immigrants have contributed to American literature, not only by the stories they have shared about their cultures, but also how they have reshaped our own national story. The presentation will examine how that literature overturns myths about immigration and America, defending the vital role of immigration in enriching the country.
