CONFERENCES & SYMPOSIA
2017 NYFS Conference:
Cultural Migration: Displacement and Renewal
September 9, 2017
The Castellani Art Museum of Niagara University, Niagara Falls, NY
“Cultural Migration: Displacement and Renewal”
Migration across national borders reflects the conditions of an ever-changing world. The impacts of migration include the communication and sharing of cultural knowledge across geography and across ethnic and community boundaries. Migration also engenders accommodation, both from the hosting communities and the new arrivals. This shifting landscape may spark both positive and negative emotions, as hosting communities and migrants experience tensions arising from cultural intersections and differences.
