* Immigration in Kansas TodayImmigration in Kansas Today

Time: 7:00 pm

Mathew Sanderson will present "Immigration in Kansas Today." Since settlement in the 19th century, the story of Kansas has largely been a story of immigration. This presentation explores how immigration today compares to immigration since the 1860s, connecting the trends in the benefits and challenges that communities face when new people move in. Looking at history, how can today’s Kansas towns and neighborhoods develop socially and ecologically resilient communities? The social processes of integrating new cultures into our increasingly shared space will be examined, as well as the impact these changing demographics have on their natural environments. This program is part of the Kansas Humanities Council Speaker's Bureau. Additional funding for this program was provided by the Lewis H. Humphreys Charitable Trust, Bank of America, N.A., Trustee.
