Talk on Immigrants' Experience in Atlantic Canada

A group of Saint Mary's professors have just released a timely new book entitled, The Warmth of the Welcome: is Atlantic Canada a home away from home for immigrants?.  As the title suggests, this is an exploration of the many different factors which combine to determine newcomers' experience in the region as they strive to adapt and integrate with local realities.

Evie Tastsoglou and Barbara Cottrell from Sociology & Criminology and Alexandra Dobrowolsky from the Political Science Department have gathered contributions from a variety of perspectives to provide a fresh look at a complex and important topic of interest to us all.

And they will be here in the Library to discuss the book and their research, as part of our Faculty Author Series:

Wednesday, January 20 at 3 o'clock in Room LI135 (first floor)

Students, faculty and staff as well as members of the public are all welcome to attend.
