    John A. Gronbeck-Tedesco, Associate Professor of American Studies at Ramapo College of NJ, will examine the vast changes taking place in U.S. immigration between 1880 and 1930.

In the process, immigrants reshaped the American nation in the communities they inhabited, this pattern is reflected in Mahwah and the rest of NJ. The state remains a fitting microcosm of the transformations taking place on the national landscape while bearing nuances unique to region. Refreshments served afterwards.
