“I filtered through historical documents, memoirs, historical fictions, opinion articles, and sociological studies, and attempted to include a diverse array of authors. What emerged was a multiplicity of voices on a variety of topics, ranging from immigrant politics to education, and across the span of the last century.”

“As a service-learning seminar, Immigrant New York complements class discussions with required service with immigrants in the immediate community. Collaborating with the Riverside Language Program, a local ESL organization serving recently-arived New York refugees, I structured potential volunteer positions for each of the seminar’s future students, ranging from technical assistance to alumni support.  The resulting list of service opportunities is one which I hope will benefit both students and immigrants, alike.”
