The Newport Public Library will host “Borderless: Migration, Globalization, and Changing Communities,” a Conversation Project led by Lewis & Clark College professor Elliott Young, on Thursday, September 15th, at 7:00 p.m.
This FREE program addresses the question of how local communities, in the twenty-first century, can think in new ways about the relationship between migration and globalization, and their effects on Oregon.
Young was born in New York City and has been migrating westward ever since. He has conducted research and performed community development work in Cuba, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay, and Ecuador. Young has been a professor of Latin American and borderlands history at Lewis & Clark College in Portland since 1997.
This Conversation Project is sponsored by Oregon Humanities, an independent, nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities and a partner of the Oregon Cultural Trust, with additional help from The Whaler.
