Session 2: “If you don’t like it, leave.”- Pressure to Assimilate

Thursday, February 19, 2014

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

The Edge of Chaos, 4th Floor Lister Hill Library


The pressure to assimilate and adapt to a set of cultural norms is one faced not only by immigrants, but by many minority groups in the U.S, regardless of social identity. In this session, we will examine the seemingly disparate elements of our own identities, and explore the complex power dynamics of cultural assimilation.


 

*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.
