Western Reserve Historical Society (Cleveland, OH 44106-1777)
John J. Grabowski (Project Director: March 2008 to March 2011)
Passages: Community Memory and the Landmarks of Migration

In the summer of 2009, the Western Reserve Historical Society will present "Passages: Community Memory and the Landmarks of Migration." Greater Cleveland offers a an ideal site for a workshop about the way we have come to see and can be trained to better understand the landmarks of migration. Today, two centuries after its founding, Cleveland and its surrounding suburbs are layered with landmarks which show its development into a major diverse metropolitan area. What is particularly intriguing and important about the migrant landscape of Cleveland is that one can still clearly discern the various layers of migration history, indeed, dating back to its New England origins, in a number of areas of the community. During these two one-week workshops, community college faculty from across the nation will visit specific landmarks and landscapes to literally see the various strata of migration history that Cleveland uniquely has to offer.
