ACME Session: Women in Migration

Apr 27, 2017, 6:30 pm

Utah is a welcoming state to immigrants, currently hosting 60,000 refugees fleeing persecution, violence, and war.  Eight percent of our state's population is foreign born, with a large representation of migrants from Canada, Mexico, and China. Explore the political, social, and economic issues of immigration with Session leaders from The Institute of (im)Possible Subjects—a transnational feminist collective of artists, writers, and researchers.
Through the humanities, film screenings, performance, and a video/media making workshop we seek to create dialogue and imagery reflecting the experience of women in these migratory times. Bring your stories and enthusiasm to learn about migration and how it impacts our communities. We welcome all ages, genders, and national origins to this timely discussion as we grapple with our twenty-first-century reality—people, family, and even objects on the move.

This program is funded in part by a UH Competitive Grant.
