Part of the Syracuse Symposium series.
CODE^SHIFT at Newhouse School presents a showcase of media, art, and storytelling created within immigrant, undocumented, and borderland communities in Syracuse and Richmond, VA. This gathering includes stories of resettlement, preservation, and integration in multiple media formats -- poetry, memoir, photography, painting, video and audio -- from people resettled in Syracuse and Richmond from over a dozen countries. Artist Rina Banerjee worked with some of our community collaborators during her residency as 2023 Jeannette K. Watson Distinguished Visiting Professor in the Humanities.
As resettlement cities with several new and older generations of immigrants and asylum-seekers, Syracuse and Richmond are uniquely positioned to serve as repositories and confluences of everyday stories of coping and resilience.
