Join us for the opening reception of Naturalizing Immigration, an exhibition of text, artwork and data visualization as one of the outcomes of the 2017-18 CAMD Dean’s Fellowship led by faculty members Pedro M. Cruz, Brooke Foucault Welles, Sarah J. Jackson, and John Wihbey. 

This research team used census data to examine and make visible the population flows in and to the United States from 1790 to 2010, focusing on three areas: 1) resident foreign population by place of origin, 2) internal U.S. migration flows and extraction of underlying network, 3) identification of missing populations and stories that bring to light issues of race and inequality in the United States. Data visualization tools illustrate findings and create awareness about issues of immigration, race, and justice. This project serve as a poignant example of how the arts, humanities, social sciences, and data science can work together to illuminate trends and patterns that underscore historical and contemporary inequalities in the U.S.
