Abstract

Migration and immigration are the reasons that Americans have such a lively, and admittedly sometimes troubled, engagement with diversity. In proposing to host a series of community discussions on migration and immigration, Xavier University’s overarching goal is to facilitate an inclusive and ongoing dialogue on im/migrant experiences, both past and present. We hope that discussions and a web site hosting a range of primary sources related to different immigration and migration experiences will allow Cincinnatians to reflect on how they and their ancestors came here and to explore how their experiences intersect with others.
