Join us as Westy Egmont and Alvaro Lima unpack the stories behind the maps in the Leventhal Map Center’s exhibition, Who We Are: Boston Immigration Then and Now. Alvaro will examine how transnationalism pushes the boundaries of traditional nation-state rules for citizenship, political rights, and migration, and Westy will discuss how diversity can foster a pluralistic world view and secure communities. After the talk, audience members will be invited to reexamine Who We Are.

Please note that this event will take place in the Commonwealth Salon across the hall from the Leventhal Map Center gallery. The gallery will remain open for additional viewing until 8:00 pm.
