You are invited, (see the message below from Professor Mita Banerjee from IGLAS) to a conference, “Migrations: A Conference on Refugees, Immigration, and Global Movement” on Friday, November 8, 9:30-4 pm, in the McConnell Center, Founders Room at Pitzer College.  Professor Suyapa Portillo and I, Jose Calderon, will be on a panel from 10:15-11:15.  In addition to the invitation below, Professor Banerjee has attached the flyer and the schedule.

I’m pleased to share the attached flyer and schedule with you, for the IGLAS Conference on Friday November 8 (with a noon hour reading by Kenneth E. Miller on Thurs. Nov. 7).  To join us for lunch at the conference on Friday November 8, please send your rsvp to  Again, the the Migrations Conference is this Friday November 8, from 9:30 AM-4 PM, poster & schedule attached.

I wanted to honor the Interdisciplinary nature of our college, and the fact that my best conference experiences have integrated the humanities and arts along with social and physical sciences, by highlighting a couple of events for you.  Kenneth E. Miller will do a reading from his book War Torn on Thursday Nov. 7, 12-1 PM, Mead Living Room.

With the generous help of Ciara Ennis, Christopher Michno, and Seth Pringle, there will be an art installation of still images from Ken Miller’s film work with Refugee Communities, presented as a photo montage.  This will be located in the Founder’s Room Atrium.  Please join us for a wine and cheese reception in that space, beginning at 4 PM on Friday, for an opportunity to see those photos and chat with conference speakers and fellow attendees.

Looking forward to seeing you there,
