Journeys of Migration: Hosted by the Centre for Research on Migration and Ethnic Relations

This year’s Journeys of Migration features We Are Not the Others, a play created by Dr. Mirna Carranza, McMaster School of Social Work, and Izad Etemadi, actor and playwright. It is based on the findings of a two-year research project examining immigrant women’s experiences. Following the production, Mirna Carranza and Izad Etemadi, as well as the actresses, will answer questions about the research on which the play was based.

3:00 - 7:00 PM
