The 14th Amendment in Franco American Life

September 28, 2016 | 12:00pm | Franco American Centre, University of Maine

A 14th Amendment Arts & Humanities Event

David Vermette, James Myall, and Patrick Lacroix will explore the impact of the 14th amendment upon the Franco American community, aiding in an understanding of the historical context of current debates over deportation and citizenship.

The goal of this grant category, offered in partnership with the Maine Arts Commission and the Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine, is to use the arts and the humanities to highlight and examine Fourteenth Amendment-related social and cultural issues.
