Windham-Campbell Prize Talk | Children of Migrations

Free admission

From the Windrush Generation in the United Kingdom to the Great Migration in the United States, the story of migration and its effect on families and culture was as significant a story in the last century as it is in this one. Alicia Schmidt Camacho engages four “children” of migrations about how this story has impacted their lives and their work.

Alicia Schmidt Camacho is a migration scholar, with a focus on migrant led social movements in North America. She teaches in the Ethnicity, Race, and Migration Program at Yale University.

Windham-Campbell Literature Prize programs

Established in 2013 with a gift from the late novelist Donald Windham in memory of his partner of forty years, Sandy M. Campbell, the Windham-Campbell Literature Prizes at Yale University recognize writers worldwide and give prominence to their literary achievements. The prizes provide opportunities to focus on work independent of financial concerns.
