The End of Life & The Birth of “Finnish North America”
Please join us for a lecture by Dr. Samira Saramo, recipient of the 2016-2017 Immigration History Research Center’s Michael G. Karni Scholarship. Dr. Saramo is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the John Morton Center for North American Studies at the University of Turku. A Finnish Canadian, Saramo received a Ph.D. in History from York University in Toronto in 2014.
