In May, 2018, Communication and Journalism students from the University of Maine held a public readers’ theater and conversation about immigration and diversity in Maine. The performance was the culmination of a semester-long project, guided by Dr. Liliana Herakova, of collecting and reflecting on stories of and about immigration to the state. Entitled PERFORMING ME PERFORMING US, the readers’ theater presented a collage of stories, poetry, and research exploring diversity as a complex, embodied, creative experiences of encountering the self, cultures, and history in various contexts. In the public conversation that followed the performance,
students reflected on story-sharing as a process of deep listening and co-witnessing that shaped their perceptions, knowledge, and identities. Please join us when some of the participants share what they learned and continue to learn from this experience.
