Students to present oral history research results at Broome County Public Library

Binghamton University students will present the results of a community-based research project in a public poster session from 6-7:45 p.m. Wednesday, April 30, at the Broome County Public Library, 185 Court Street, Binghamton. All are welcome to attend. The students interviewed first- and second-generation immigrants who moved to the Greater Binghamton region from German-speaking and Russian-speaking countries, and collected “Immigration Stories” on elements of success, social and religious institutions, issues of assimilation and adaptation, and more. The research projects address these issues and other aspects of the immigrant experience. The students are currently enrolled in the course Germans and Russians in New York.
