Dessert & Discussion: Understanding Contemporary Immigration Patterns

This event has been cancelled.

Understanding Contemporary Immigration Patterns
Presented by Amy Bhatt, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Gender and Women’s Studies
Tuesday, May 7, 6-8 p.m.

Skylight Room, The Commons, UMBC

Dr. Bhatt will examine the experiences of early South Asians who settled on the Pacific coast in the early 1890s through the 1990s. Though the East Coast of the U.S. has some of the largest South Asian populations in the country today, these early settlers shed light on the development of South Asian communities across the U.S. and are an important location in understanding contemporary immigration patterns. Dr. Bhatt is co-author of Roots and Reflection: South Asians in the Pacific Northwest and the discussion highlights the gender, race, and class aspects of this immigration and settlement from her book.
