Global Minnesota: Immigrants Past and Present

Implementation of a year-long project of public forums and smaller-scale public programs on the history of immigration in Minnesota that would also include a digital oral history project on recent immigrants’ experiences.

Global Minnesota: Immigrants Past and Present, a year-long series of dynamic public
programming organized by the Immigration History Research Center (IHRC) at the University
 of Minnesota, will engage diverse public audiences across the state in ongoing public
reflection on immigration's role in shaping American life. The IHRC will collaborate with
humanities scholars and community organizations to produce public forums, programs, and
educational resources that discuss a wide range of multigenerational immigrant histories in
Minnesota, a state with a long and rich history of both “old” and “new” immigration. The IHRC
is requesting funding from the Humanities in the Public Square program to support both
large-scale public forums with award-winning writers and scholars and smaller-scale
community-based programs and discussions during 2016, which will cost a total of $205,800.
We are requesting $148,015 from the NEH and will cost share the remainder.
