The presentation will draw from the successful tale of Alfred Nicola in the US at the turn of the twentieth century, why he came and what this meant to his own country of origin that was in transformation (in his most recent book, see below).  Building on this, it will look at immigration then and today, the impacts and implications, the reasons and challenges.
