The Upper Midwest of the United States has long been home to a shifting array of immigrant diasporas which have interacted within and built up emergent social spaces in concert and in conflict with other ethnic communities, settler and indigenous. This panel explores a few examples of the creative productions ethnic communities in the Upper Midwest have employed in establishing their presence in the region and in negotiating their identities in diaspora and in relation to neighboring groups.
