Hamline in York is a Fall semester abroad program offered by Hamline University in partnership with the University of York.

Fall 2018 On-site Hamline Course Description:
New Immigrants to England: Changes and Challenges
Hamline Plan Letters: D: Diversity, W: Writing Intensive (all pending); P: LEAP with internship option only
In this course we look at global issues in forced migration, examining the root causes of displacement. We investigate how England is responding to the influx of immigrants and how the religious, cultural, and ethnic diversity of recent immigrants shapes and defines modern Britain. With a special focus on the experiences of youth in schools, we also discuss the identity development of immigrants and how these identities are constructed, contested, and negotiated in this new country.
About the Professor:
Associate Professor Letitia Basford, firstname.lastname@example.org, 651-523-2303
Letitia Basford’s teaching and research interests focus on students’ equitable access to education, with a focus on reform-based pedagogy. Her research interests surround how students’ culture, religion, race, gender and class, as well as their interactions with teachers and peers, play important roles in shaping their achievement, adjustment and identity in schools. She has studied how the Somali and Hmong refugee populations experience and become shaped by schools here in the Twin Cities and is also invested in scholarship around the school to prison pipeline.
She has led two Thailand J-Term courses before, as well as a J-Term course in Mexico, and has traveled extensively throughout the world, including England. Before becoming a professor in the School of Education at Hamline nine years ago, she was a middle school ESL teacher and the coordinator of a teen parent center in California. She earned her PhD in Second Languages & Cultures Education from the University of Minnesota.
