Insightful discussions will be led by Duquesne University scholars Dr. Jennie Schulze, associate professor of political science, and Dr. Emad Mirmotahari, associate professor of English.

Program Six: Immigration and Popular Culture with scholar Dr. Emad Mirmotahari. This film considers the ways the media and popular culture have historically taught newcomers how to “be American” and how different immigration groups’ contributions have transformed culture and art in the United States.
