UW-Green Bay’s Humanistic Studies Program received a grant from the Wisconsin Humanities Council for a project: Displacement and Immigration: Through a Different Lens. The funding will be used to help middle school students and their families gain a deeper understanding about global displacement of people as well as local immigration. In partnership with the Neville Public Museum, students will see three films and a theatrical production with discussion following about what leads to immigration — both what pushes people from their home countries and what draws them to their new homes — and the impact this displacement has on communities. This program is designed for middle schoolers, who often are not the target of public programs. The films explore a Syrian refugee camp, an undocumented Latina pursuing the arts in California, and the odyssey of a Hmong family who waits in a Thai refugee camp before eventual settlement in the U.S. The one-person performance tells the true story of a German-Jewish man who must either secretly assimilate for having a Jewish grandparent, or flee his homeland during World War II.
