Uprooted: Displacement, Mobility, and Impermanence

  • Lewis & Clark College 0615 Southwest Palatine Hill Road Portland, OR, 97219 United States (map)
This panel will look at the ways in which people create home, specifically in the context of migrations and movements, while keeping in mind urgent issues of immigration and refugeeism.

How do geographic upheaval and movement affect racial, ethnic, and national identity? How do people conceptualize home in transitory conditions? Is there an “end point” if home is constantly moving?
