Our Guest of Honor:

Erika Polson

"Paris, International Expats: Connected, But To What?"

Migration and Media In A Global Age

Perspectives And Practices Of International


Let's have a look at how international expatriates and global nomads use media, global connectedness of information and media technologies to link to create communities, compared with other different migrant groups.

Erika Polson, is a doctoral candidate in international communications at Pennsylvania State University. She will discuss connections between national-identity, personal identity, and media for migrating peoples. Much has been written about specific national or ethnic groups in migration, but there is much to be understood about the perspectives and practices of international expatriates.

As a 24 year expat (next week is my 24th anniversary), I'm fascinated by this subject. Hope to see you on Sunday. - Patricia
