Immigrants power the regions economic engines, yet their ability to engage in
communities often hinges on their immigration status. Migrants Clinicians Network
(MCN) has partnered with renowned photojournalist Earl Dotter to capture the rhythm
of their lives and work. Their images and stories offer an opportunity to humanize the
greater immigration discussion. The goal of this exhibition and panel discussion is to
promote civic engagement in an often-fraught conversation, and to explore the
impact of immigration amidst settled communities and the impact of migration on
immigrants and their families.
The panel discussion includes Dotter, who for decades has documented the lives
of immigrants and other laborers through both text and image. Also on the panel is
Dr. Louise Detwiler, SU Modern Languages and Intercultural Studies Department chair;
Dr. Tim Dunn, SU professor of sociology, Dr. Casper Bendixsen, a cultural
anthropologist from the National Farm Medicine Center; and Noe Parra Manrique, an
immigrant, photo subject, longtime Salisbury resident and parent. The panel will be
moderated by Amy Liebman, an expert on migrant health.
