"Uprooted: Heartache and Hope in New Hampshire"
Dr. Sara Withers of the UNH anthropology department (pictured left) will facilitate a screening of “Uprooted: Heartache and Hope in New Hampshire" on Thursday December 7 from 7 - 9 p.m. in the Gregg Hall Auditorium in conjunction with the NCC Lecture Series program.
"Uprooted" is a 30-minute documentary based on interviews conducted by the UNH Center for the Humanities during New Hampshire Humanities' Fences & Neighbors initiative on immigration. It tells the story of five refugees who escaped from war-torn countries to resettle in New Hampshire.
Dr. Withers earned a PhD in Anthropology from Brandeis University & is a senior lecturer of anthropology at UNH. She organized & conducted nearly 40 oral history interviews that served as the basis for “Uprooted: Heartache and Hope in New Hampshire.”
The Nashua Community College Lecture Series is designed to promote an appreciation of a diverse cultural and intellectual experience through the expertise shared by a variety of guest speakers. The program is open to both the College and Greater Nashua communities.
It is a goal of Nashua Community College to promote the arts, humanities and sciences to the College population and the community at large for the purpose of encouraging an appreciation and understanding of a greater global experience through these fundamental areas.
