Becoming American: A Documentary Film and Discussion Series on Our Immigration Experience is a six-session series of public programs featuring documentary film screenings and discussions of immigration issues against the backdrop of immigration history, led by Dr. Lucy Salyer, UNH Associate Professor of History. Presented by Strawbery Banke Museum and hosted by 3S Artspace.

Program 6: Immigration and Popular Culture 
looks at the ways the media and popular culture have historically taught newcomers how to “be American,” and how the rich contributions of different immigrant groups have transformed American culture and art. 
The discussion explores such themes as:

·      Generational changes in culture and identity
·      How different ethnicities are represented, and how that has changed over time
·      Cultural debates over identity
·      Definition from inside vs. definition from outside
·      Use of familiar icons in new cultural settings
·      Cross-cultural meeting vs. cultural appropriation
