IMMIGRATION AND POPULAR CULTURE
Becoming American: A Documentary Film and Discussion Series on Our Immigration Experience is a six-week public program featuring documentary film screenings and moderated discussions designed to encourage an informed discussion of immigration issues against the backdrop of our immigration history.
“Immigration and Popular Culture” looks at the ways the media and popular culture have historically taught newcomers how to “be American,” and how the rich contributions of different immigrant groups have transformed American culture and art.
