During this open class, graduate students in EN 533 (Literatures of Immigration) will deliver eight-to-nine minute presentations that draw on projects they completed during the second part of the semester, including research papers and book reviews. Rather than surveying the scholarship or offering overviews of their arguments and findings, the presenters will single out one aspect of the project that they found most compelling and take us on exciting critical journeys through literary works by and about immigrants from Europe, Africa, and Latin America. Focused on novels such as Mary Antin’s The Promised Land, Aleksandar Hemon’s The Lazarus Project, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Americanah, and Edwidge Danticat’s Breath, Eyes, Memory, the projects examine narratives of emigration, immigration, exile, and return; issues related to assimilation /acculturation, race, ethnicity, class, and gender; the emergence of various immigrant identities and subjectivities, and the interplay of politics and aesthetics.
Students will utilize FEMA’s HAZUS software to undertake and examine an individual municipality’s vulnerability to flooding.

The Schools of Social Work, Education, and Nursing and Health Studies highlight student research and practice reflections.
Posters will discuss: 1) Proposed Research, 2) Completed Research or Research in Progress, 3) Experiential Education and Clinical Practice Reflections, or 4) Other scholarly work. Refreshments will be served.
