Changes in apparent relations and the formation of such among Comorian immigrants in Marseilles

2011-2-9 (Wed) 4:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.

The Global Collaboration Center will hold a seminar, "Changes in apparent relations and the formation of such among Comorian immigrants in Marseilles" on Wednesday, February 9. Marseilles, a city on the south coast of France, home to many immigrants from the Comoros Islands off the coast of East Africa, is often referred to as the "Fifth Island of Comoros".

"Diaspora Comorien" immigrants have assimilated into French society and put down roots as Marseilles citizens while, at the same time, holding on to their traditional culture and religion and forming immigrant communities that maintain strong ties with the villages they came from in Comoros.

This seminar will focus on an examination of the activities of the Comorian "hometown associations," hoping to clarify how identification among Comorian immigrants appears to be changing both in individual relations and group activities among the Comorian immigrants now residing in Marseilles.
