The Immigrant Experience in California through Literature and Theater

A two-week institute for twenty-five schoolteachers on immigration to California as revealed through literature and theater.

In July 2014, the Departments of Communication Studies and Radio, TV, Film, and Theatre Arts at San Jose State University (SJSU) hosted a Summer Institute for School Teachers titled The Immigrant Experience in California through Literature and Theatre. The institute was a great success and we will be hosting it again in July 2016. We propose to host the institute a third time from June 25 to July 9, 2017. New to the 2017 institute will be faculty presentations by Khaled Hosseini (author The Kite Runner), Luis Alfaro (playwright, professor, and MacArthur Fellow), and Erika Lee (Director of the Immigration History Research Center at the University of Minnesota).
