Program 3: Between Two Worlds - Identity and Acculturation 
looks at how immigrants react and adjust to living in a new country and culture, and how they bridge the divide between the traditions and values of their native countries.
The discussion explores such themes as:

·      Foodways and culinary traditions
·      Religion
·      Assimilation and acculturation
·      Writing one's personal story
