<h4>Diaspora Communities in the Valley (Glocalization)</h4>

In 2006, as part of a grant-writing exercise, several religious studies faculty identified interests in documenting the array of diaspora communities in the Valley, and one faculty member presented an overview of this project at the AAR western regional conference in 2006, “Religion and Immigration in Silicon Valley” (Prof. Philip Boo Riley). Given interests and faculty expertise, LRP will focus on African, Asian, Central and Latin American diaspora communities, and will explore collaborations with other programs on campus, including Study Abroad, Ethnic Studies, and new interdisciplinary programs in Africa Studies and AIMES. For further information, contact LRP Director Prof. David Gray.
