Implementation of a three-year, statewide project examining immigration to New Hampshire through a wide variety of formats, including oral histories and reading and discussion programs.

The New Hampshire Humanities Council requests support for Fences and Neighbors: New Hampshire's Immigration Stories, a three-year statewide initiative on immigration. The project is designed to create and implement public humanities programs that foreground face to face conversations and also to support grass-roots humanities programming and oral history collection where immigrants and refugees have settled in the densest numbers along the I-93 corridor. Programs will a)increase knowledge about immigrants and refugees and about our immigration policies in general; b) enable collaborations among municipal, legal, civic, and religious organizations that can plan and implement humanities-based public programs on immigration; c)assist immigrants and refugees to acquire language and cultural literacy; d)encourage the exchange of stories among older immigrants and new arrivals to raise cultural awareness for New Hampshire residents.
