Central College Faculty Lecture Series - Immigration in the Midwest
Maria Snyder, associate professor of German and French, and Anya Butt, professor of biology, will present "Model Citizens and Undesirable Aliens: Immigrants in Iowa" from 7-8 p.m. Wednesday, April 7 via Zoom.
Who are "real Iowans" and "real Americans?" Snyder and Butt will take a personal and historical approach by connecting Butt's experience as an immigrant and "Other," or someone who is different from the norm, with questions about immigration in the Midwest. They will look at how "Others" have been defined, rejected and tolerated and what acceptance means in our time.
