Each year, the
HumanitiesX Advisory Council selects a topical theme that is both timely and lends itself to humanities inquiry. In 2019, in the context of much public debate about the issue, the Council selected
Immigration and Migration as our inaugural theme. This issue has only become more relevant in an era of pandemic-induced closed borders.
The 2021-22 cohort of HumanitiesX fellows includes three teams, each comprised of two faculty members from DePaul's College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences and a community partner from a Chicago-area nonprofit organization. Each team will collaboratively develop a course on immigration and migration, which will be taught in Spring Quarter 2022.
Publishing Immigrants’ Oral Histories: The Art of Listening & Telling. This course will work with the Su Casa Catholic Worker House to create, edit, and publish a digital anthology of oral histories of immigration and migration. Su Casa is an organization that provides transitional housing for families who have survived domestic violence. Students will gain awareness of the challenges faced by these families, as well as engage in the practice of collecting oral histories and preparing them for publication.
