FARMINGTON — The University of Maine at Farmington welcomes the public to “Stories of People Moving Places,” the next presentation in the UMF Public Classroom Series by S. Olivia Donaldson, UMF assistant professor of French.
The talk is set for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 18, in the UMF Emery Community Arts Center. It is free and open to the public. Refreshments will served at 6 p.m.
The presentation spans contemporary literature, comics, art, film, and digital media, as it asks how migration transforms individuals, families, communities, and nations.
Donaldson’s research on migrant women writers has appeared in the journal, Reconstruction; is forthcoming in the journal, Contemporary Women’s Writing; and the anthology, “Where is Adaptation?”
Donaldson holds a doctorate in French from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she was a fellow at the Institute for Research in the Humanities. She earned a Masters of Arts in history at Virginia Tech, and served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Benin.
The UMF Public Classroom Series is sponsored by the UMF Office of the President.
