THE WEISSMAN GLOBAL SEMINAR PRESENTS

 “Inside Story: 

Narrating Undocumented Immigration”

Sarah C. Bishop, Communication Studies

Tuesday, October 10, 2017, Room 8-210, 1230-200pm, Lunch served

RSVP: Alison.griffiths@baruch.cuny.edu

Undocumented immigrants across the United States have confronted the risks of detention and deportation to tell their stories publicly in hopes of advancing immigration reform. In this talk, Sarah Bishop will foreground the work of immigrant activists and artists to illuminate the centrality of storytelling in the immigrant rights movement, and to reveal the power and limitations of framing and strategic messaging for advancing sociopolitical change. Tracing storytelling through both organizational and grassroots activism reveals the obstacles that stories-as-activism must overcome, demonstrates the ways members of the movement have advocated for reframing when stories have unintended effects, and attests to the unique facility of digital media to serve immigrant storytellers in search of an audience.  

Sarah C. Bishop holds a PhD from the University of Pittsburgh and an MA from New York University. She is the author of the book U.S. Media and Migration: Refugee Oral Histories and specializes in research concerning the interactions of nationalism, citizenship, migration, and media. Her recent work in this area can be found in journals such as Critical Studies in Media Communication, the Journal of Applied Communication Research, Communication Culture and Critique, Space and Culture, the Journal of Studies in International Education and the Journal of Intercultural Communication
