Panel on Migration Emigration, Migration, and Self-Determination: Italians, Mexicans, and Puerto Ricans in Search of an American Dream.

Panel on Migration Emigration, Migration, and Self-Determination: Italians, Mexicans, and Puerto Ricans in Search of an American Dream.

Deans and Directors of the John D. Calandra Italian American Institute (Queens College), the Jaime Lucero Mexican Studies Institute (Lehman College), and the Center for Puerto Rican Studies (Hunter College) will meet to discuss the various experiences of each group and the affinities among them, as Italians, Mexicans, and Puerto Ricans have had to negotiate their respective places within the United States’ socio-cultural fabric. The panelists will include Alyshia Gálvez (Mexican Institute), Edwin Meléndez (Centro PR), and Anthony Julian Tamburri (Calandra Institute).

The three entities have a similar raison d’être: Like many other CUNY institutes, they each work with faculty, administrators, staff, and students to boost enrollment of their students; they each foster research in collaboration with and about their respective members in the United States via lecture series, conferences, and publications; and they each collaborate with community-based organizations and elected officials in order to support and empower their immigrant communities across generations.
