TELLING IMMIGRANT STORIES
THROUGH FOOD:
NCSPP Community Potluck

Course Overview: 

Join NCSPP for an intimate potluck gathering in a private home. Guests are asked to bring a dish that has personal significance to share with others, and reflect on the ways that food connects us to a sense of home and belonging. In light of the recent statement from the APA that condemned the separation of children from their parents at the U.S./Mexico border as inhumane and harmful, this event aims to bring attention to the psychological impact of immigration on children and families. As part of our exploration, Dr. Meiyang Kadaba will share her thoughts and findings from her dissertation work about the experiences of “Transnational Left Behind Children” (TLBC), a term that refers to children who were “left behind” by their parents in China, and later immigrated to the U.S. to join their parents several years later.

We will have time for a presentation, question and answer period, share food, and a chance to engage with one another about a very relevant and timely topic.
