Professor and Urban Education Alum Tatyana Kleyn will present a lecture title "Becoming a Multi-modal Scholar Advocate." Studying the intersection of migration, language, and education is important, yet insufficient in these trying times. This session will trace the journey and impetus of bringing my research to a broader audience while advocating for just immigration and education reforms in the US and Mexico. Becoming a public scholar and advocate requires seeking out non-traditional modalities of sharing information. My route has included creating documentary films and accompanying curriculum and resources to reach beyond academia. A screening of the short film, Still Living Undocumented: Five Years Later, and discussion about multimodal approaches to research and advocacy will follow.
