UGC Project "Marginalized Communities in Urban Centers" workshop at HWS

The "Marginalized Communities in Urban Centers" working group, which is part of the Upstate-Global Collective project, will host its first workshop at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in August 2016.  Faculty will read and discuss a common set of readings developed in the spring 2016 in order to create a common background on the issues of migration and the challenges of integrated citizenship.  In addition, faculty will invite representatives from Rochester, NY-based refugee community resources.  From our half-day discussion with service providers and perhaps refugees themselves, the faculty will agree upon targeted themes for their collective research.  Based upon the themes that emerge and the interests in particular South Asian urban centers, faculty will plan the Winter 2016/2017 research trip.
