Two one-week Landmarks workshops for fifty community college faculty members to examine immigration and migration in Cleveland.

In the summer of 2011, the Western Reserve Historical Society will present "Passages: Community Memory and the Landmarks of Migration." Greater Cleveland offers an ideal site for a workshop about the way we have come to see and can be trained to better understand the landmarks of migration. Today, two centuries after its founding, Cleveland and its surrounding suburbs are layered with landmarks which show its development into a major diverse metropolitan area. What is particularly intriguing and important about the migrant landscape of Cleveland is that one can still clearly discern the various layers of migration history, indeed, dating back to its New England origins, in a number of areas of the community. During these two one-week workshops, community college faculty from across the nation will visit specific landmarks and landscapes to literally see the various strata of migration history that Cleveland uniquely has to offer.
