Chicago’s Polonia: Past, Present, Future
Dr. Jason Schneider of DePaul University will discuss the story of Chicago’s Polish immigrant community, or Polonia, by focusing on the historical migrations of Poles to the U.S., and some of the group’s practices and contributions after settling in the Chicago area. Then, drawing on his own research with Polish immigrants and the work of others, he will explore how the community has evolved in recent years and speculate on possible future directions for Chicago’s Polonia.
Craft will be available.
