Session 1: Document That! Establishing a Common Language of Immigration

 

Thursday, February 6, 2014

 

6:00p.m. - 8:00p.m.

 

The Edge of Chaos, 4th Floor Lister Hill Library


We will discuss what language means to us and unpack the language we use to discuss immigration. We will take a critical look at some of the language used to describe immigrant experiences- formal and colloquial-  we use to label immigrants, and the language used within immigrant communities.  We will collaborate to establish a set of acceptable language which we will employ in all following sessions.

 

 

*OPEN TO UAB STUDENTS ONLY*

Free Food For Thought encourages building a community that values diversity.  Interested participants exchange viewpoints on selected topics, resulting in a greater awareness about issues and experiences across social and personal identities.  Learning from one another through facilitated respectful discussion helps us value the contributions of our peers.

In exchange for opinions, we provide

Free Food.
