Migrant Research / Library Show & Tell
Did you ever wonder what’s behind the doors of the Special Collections of the USF Tampa Library?
Some lucky folks got to find out, as just a small portion of the hundreds of thousands of objects in the archives were on display at an event called “A Few of Our Favorite Things.” See more on University Beat on WUSF TV.
USF anthropology professor Heide Castañeda recently spent two months in Mexico and Texas meeting with some of the immigrants crossing into these areas as they fled Central America. She talked with them about their dangerous journey to the U.S., as well as with people who live there to learn what they think of what’s happening. We’ll talk to her about what she saw on this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
Matt Knight, Coordinator of the USF Tampa Library Special Collections, shows WUSF's Mark Schreiner some of the highlights from the collections.
