The Lawrence History Center and its partners will host a one-day symposium on April 5, 2014 on the history of the “new immigration,” into Lawrence, Massachusetts and similar communities. Scholars, graduate, undergraduate, and high school students are encouraged to submit proposals. Papers, artwork, spoken word, and video presentations are welcome.
This symposium will take a historical approach to contemporary immigration, focusing on Lawrence, Massachusetts, and looking to understand the roots and significance of the demographic transition still underway. We hope also to engage the current population of Lawrence and its surrounding cities and towns in a civic dialogue about the impact of race, ethnicity, and class on immigrant reception and integration into communities like Lawrence.
