Description, Abstract, or Artist's Statement

I spent a week at the Swenson Swedish Immigration Center to explore materials that would highlight the history and cultural influence of Swedish and Scandinavian immigration in Latin America. Before beginning my research, I pinpointed a few texts and publications at the Center that I thought would help to develop further connections between race and immigration for Latin America. My intention was to include the subject in the delivery of my Latin American Studies courses at Augustana College and eventually pen a journal article on the research findings. Once I began working at the Swenson Center, I was happy to find a wealth of unexpected materials to enhance my investigation.
