Becoming American: A Film History of Our Immigration Experience

Planning for a six-part public program of film screenings, lectures, and scholar-led discussions on the history and impact of immigration in the United States.

"Becoming American: A Film History of Our Immigration Experience" is a six-part public program of documentary film screenings, lectures, readings and scholar-led discussions designed to engage a general audience in exploring the history and impact of immigration in the United States. The program will initially be offered at 50 sites, geared primarily to audiences at public and college libraries but will also be open to museums, historic sites and other community organizations. The project has assembled an outstanding advisory group of scholars, library and museum programmers and Internet and social media experts to advise, shape the program, contribute program materials, work with local scholars, and to assist program sites in the use of the Internet to attract and communicate with their program audience. The humanities disciplines among others represented in the project include American history, American studies, ethnic studies, urban studies, literature and music.
