The Samuel Proctor Oral History Program and the Spanish in the Community course presents Recalculating: Culture Shock and Adaptation
Immigration is a rollercoaster of ups and downs, full of uncertainties and desires, but when the journey ends, and the speed of the machine settles, there is an important decision that everyone must make: embrace the new culture, abandoning the previous life or conjugate the past, the present and the future in a new, augmented version of themselves.
Join us in this video to explore the experience of culture shock and adaptation of five Hispanic immigrants in the United States. We will learn about the customs and traditions that they preserve from their country of origin and which ones they have adapted from the United States.
