“Citizens of Nowhere” is a powerful documentary which examines the impact on Haitian migrants and their descendants, of a decision of the Dominican Republic’s Constitutional Court to change the manner in which Dominican citizenship is acquired.
The screening will be followed by an informative and interactive panel discussion that will analyze the consequences of this court decision for the Dominican Republic and, will also extract lessons for America as it confronts its own immigration issues—about DACA, about refugees and about what “citizenship” really means.
The panelists from Creighton faculty who will bring their passion for all sides of this issue are Dr. Thomas Kelly, Director-Academic Service Learning; Dr. Jacqueline Font-Guzmán, Director- Negotiation & Conflict Resolution Program; and Dr. M. Renzo Rosales, Asst. Professor, Department of Cultural and Social Studies. The panel will be moderated by Dr. Kathy Gonzales, Asst. Professor, Negotiation & Conflict Resolution Program
