 Photo Exhibition Opening: Study Tour Houston 2013 

Submitted by Ewa Adamkiewicz on Wed, 06/11/2014 - 15:28

Please join us for the opening of the photo exhibition capturing the 2013 ASL study tour "Immigration, Religion, and Citizenship" to Houston.

The photo exhibition will be opened on June 23, 5 pm, Zentrales Hörsaalgebäude, 2nd Floor, Leipzig University, and will be on display until June 30, 2014.

As in previous years, this study tour was a joint program of American Studies Leipzig and the Institute of American Studies and Polish Diaspora at Jagiellonian University in Krakow. The study tour allowed the students to take the academic experience from the classroom to the city of Houston, where they were able to apply their knowledge to field research.

Having undergone tremendous demographic, economic, social, and cultural transformations, Houston can be regarded as a microcosm reflecting national as well as global developments. In order to better understand the interrelated dynamics of immigration, religion, and citizenship, as well as their ramifications for Houston’s economic, social, and cultural diversity in present and future, the students met with representatives of various organizations, institutions, interest groups, media, and religious communities.

The photos of the exhibition document these meetings and give an insight into the diverse experiences of the study tour.
