Where the Heart Is: International Southeast Asian Migration Stories

Sunday, June 16, 2019 (All day) to Wednesday, July 31, 2019 (All day)
John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage
, Carriage House Garage Gallery

What is home to you? A place, a taste, a memory, a person – perhaps a dream? Can you remember the first time you left home?

This exhibition features the accounts of Southeast Asian women from a variety of backgrounds – migrant workers, students, business owners, and families. Gender shapes every stage of the migration experience from opportunities and resources to risks and vulnerabilities. Women are more mobile than ever, yet the experiences of female Southeast Asian migrants are often obscured. Our respondents vary in class experience and country of origin, but they all share in same the desire: to hold onto home. Visit https://blogs.brown.edu/wheretheheartis/ for more information.

Curated by Public Humanities MA students Ruby Thiagarajan MA’19 and Jasmine Chu MA’19 with Arthur Sun AB’18.5 (East Asian Studies).

Gallery Hours: Monday - Friday, 10am-4pm. Closed on weekends and holidays.
