Throughout the spring semester, a team of undergraduate students have conducted research about the Kazakh population of Northeast Philadelphia, an area known for its Russian-speaking international migrant population. Consolidating their research into a documentary and this presentation, they will highlight the distinctions between the general population and their history, beginning with the international migrants from Kazakhstan.

The Local-Global History of Philadelphia project anticipates a continuous research initiative that will explore the history of international migrants in Philadelphia in greater depth, analyzing and reflecting upon the personal stories of international migrants through the documentation of filmed interviews to supplement textual analysis research.
