The history of Southern Maryland is the history of newcomers. Today, St. Mary’s County is home to over 600 new immigrants who represent a number of different nationalities. Where did they come from? How well have they integrated in Southern Maryland communities?
Dr. Julia A. King, SMCM Professor of Anthropology, will take us to the past with her presentation Immigration and the Founding of Maryland. Dr. Judith Freidenberg, Professor of Anthropology at the University of Maryland, will focus on more recent immigration with her talk Contemporary Conversations on Immigration in the United States: The View from Prince George’s County, Maryland.
