Prof. Mary Nilles explains to students and faculty about her research in the library's new exhibit.

The subjects of the exhibit include the native people, a group of utopians from New York City (members of the Western Farm and Village Association), various European settlers, and, within the past three decades, the newcomers from Bosnia, Cambodia, Mexico, Vietnam, Russia and Somalia. Exhibit arranged by City Tech English Professor Mary Nilles with historian Jean Ensch of Strassen, Luxembourg. Dr. Nilles has arranged this display through support from and collaboration with several funding sources and many individuals. Elementary and high school-level students and instructors, as well as university students and professors in Minnesota, Luxembourg, Ohio, Wisconsin, Luxembourg, and New York City (including students in her English classes at City Tech) have been partners in this research initiative for several years. A series of posters to advertise this exhibition have been created this semester by Emmanuel Duarte, a student in a Design class taught by Professor Anthony Accardo.
